(AP) - WARY NEIGHBOR: In the world's rush to get rich off China, Mongolia works mightily to ensure that Chinese investment does not become Chinese dominance.

STANDOUT: Coal country is where Mongolia's balancing act is put to the test. Chinese demand for copper and especially coal has propelled the Mongolian economy to one of the world's fastest growing and China wants a larger share of the resources.
