Ulaan­baatar Mayor S.Bat­bold re­ceived rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Qingjian Group to dis­cuss the pos­si­bil­ity of con­struct­ing a 35,000-per­son ca­pac­ity sta­dium in Ulaan­baatar.

The mayor un­der­lined the im­por­tance of build­ing a sta­dium in which in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions can be or­ga­nized in.

Qingjian Group’s vice pres­i­dent Li Jun headed the team of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the com­pany.

“Qingjian Group is known for its in­volve­ment in the con­struc­tion of the Na­tional Sta­dium Bird’s Nest that was used in the 2008 Bei­jing Olympics. I have also been in­formed of your group’s ven­tures in the con­struc­tion of bridges and roads,” said Mayor S.Bat­bold.

“In 2020, Ulaan­baatar will host the Chil­dren of Asia Games, held ev­ery four years since 1996 un­der the pa­tron­age of the In­ter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee. There is a need to build a sta­dium with a ca­pac­ity for 35,000 spec­ta­tors,” he added.

In ad­di­tion to the sta­dium, the mayor also brought up the pos­si­bil­ity of Qingjian Group build­ing a con­cert hall in Ulaan­baatar. S.Bat­bold men­tioned he was in­formed that Qingjian Group has ex­pe­ri­ence in build­ing the­aters and cul­tural cen­ters. These projects will be im­ple­mented through con­ces­sion agree­ments with Cab­i­net. “There is also the pos­si­bil­ity of us­ing dis­counted loans from China,” the mayor told Jun.

Qingjian Group was es­tab­lished in 1952 and en­gages in do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional con­struc­tion projects and in­vest­ment, real es­tate de­vel­op­ment, cap­i­tal man­age­ment, lo­gis­tics, and de­sign con­sult­ing.

“Our group has op­er­a­tions in 30 ci­ties in China and 30 coun­tries through dif­fer­ent sub­sidiaries. The group wants to con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of Mon­go­lia. We will cre­ate a sep­a­rate team and re­search more into the con­struc­tion of the sta­dium. Af­ter that, we will have a for­mal meet­ing and fi­nal­ize the project,” said Jun.
