The UB Post - - POLITICS -

Act­ing Prime Min­is­ter J.Er­denebat held meet­ings with ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor of the United Na­tions En­vi­ron­ment Pro­gramme (UNEP) Erik Sol­heim and direc­tor of De­vel­op­ment Depart­ment of Pol-Mot Hold­ing Pol­ish agri­cul­tural equip­ment com­pany Marek Pol on Sep­tem­ber 14 to dis­cuss co­op­er­a­tion projects and pro­grams.

J.Er­denebat stated that since Mon­go­lia joined the Part­ner­ship for Ac­tion on the Green Econ­omy, which is a UN ini­tia­tive to as­sist the global tran­si­tion to a green econ­omy, the coun­try has col­lab­o­rated with the UNEP to im­ple­ment sev­eral projects and pro­grams in Mon­go­lia.

Sol­heim em­pha­sized that the most chal­leng­ing is­sue in Mon­go­lia is air pol­lu­tion and ad­vised the coun­try to de­velop ecofriendly min­ing. He added that as Ja­pan, China and South Korea have suc­cess­fully de­vel­op­ing green tech­nol­ogy in­dus­tries and are the world’s lead­ing coun­tries sup­ply­ing eco tech­nolo­gies, Mon­go­lia should co­op­er­ate with the coun­tries to im­ple­ment projects and pro­grams, and to use their tech­nolo­gies.

Act­ing Prime Min­is­ter J.Er­denebat noted that the gov­ern­ment of Mon­go­lia has done a lot of work to re­duce en­vi­ron­men­tal and air pol­lu­tions, one of which is the soon-to-launch green loan fund based on state and pri­vate sec­tor part­ner­ship.

The Pol­ish del­e­ga­tion asked J.Er­denebat to sup­port the gov­ern­ment’s ef­fort in es­tab­lish­ing a trac­tor fac­tory in Mon­go­lia.

Pol noted that Pol-Mot Hold­ing has opened trac­tor fac­to­ries in sev­eral coun­tries and is ex­pected to sup­ply first trac­tors made in Mon­go­lia in the first half of 2019. He added that the com­pany plans to pro­duce elec­tric trac­tors.

J.Er­denebat em­pha­sized that as the gov­ern­ment of Mon­go­lia is sup­port­ing agri­cul­tural pro­duc­tion in Mon­go­lia and prod­ucts which help the coun­try’s ex­ports, man­u­fac­tur­ing agri­cul­tural equip­ment in the coun­try will have a pos­i­tive im­pact on fur­ther­ing the gov­ern­ment’s goal.
