2. Z.Zambaga participated at the “Internet of Things” United Nations Congress 2018 from February 22-23, 2018 in London, United Kingdom. United Nations Congress was formed to bring together global experts and decision makers from around the globe to Connect, Communicate and Collaborate to explore great possibilities. United Nations Congress is one of the leading congresses in the world for business networking and knowledge sharing.
My active involvement at the Mongolia-Australia Society’s activities gave me a lifetime opportunity to participate in such an esteemed conference: Internet of Things. Today, the internet has become routine in our daily lives. Personally, I cannot express in words how happy I am for all the opportunities the internet gives me, such as opportunities to collect desired information and data from an unlimited number of sources. It helps me to analyze any item, condition, opinion, decision and events from different angles and perspectives, so I could have my own belief and knowledge, based on data. The congress allowed me to learn about the most recent developments of the internet as well as advantages and disadvantages of our second world – the Digital World. I was extremely happy and it was my responsibility to share my knowledge with others and I prepared a 60 minute presentation about statistics, facts and figures, challenges, advantages and recent developments of the internet, including a small part about Great Britain and Northern Ireland. My content was broadcasted during two Saturdays, on the morning program called “Onoo Ogloo” in the section “The World and Mongolia”. In the future, I am planning to write a book about world statistics compared with our country. I am looking forward to using my knowledge.
