Mongolia seeks to increase trade with Czech Republic
Minister of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry B.Batzorig received Ambassador Jiri Brodsky from the Czech Republic to Mongolia, discussing ways to increase trade between the two countries.
The two sides agreed to improve cooperation in meat and milk processing and production, and woodworking. In order to achieve this, Minister S.Batzorig and Ambassador Brodsky agreed to support the intensification of cooperation between private businesses of the two countries and train Mongolian agricultural workers in the Czech Republic.
Mongolia imports food products valued at 357,000 USD and does not export to the Czech Republic. The fact that Mongolia does not export any products to the Czech Republic is an issue that needs to be addressed, said Minister S.Batzorig.
During the meeting, projects financed by the Czech Republic in Mongolia were discussed also. Moving forward, the two sides agreed to pay special attention to agriculture.
Czech Ambassador Brodsky proposed to organize a business meeting between entrepreneurs of the two countries during the meeting of the commission between Mongolia and the Czech Republic. Minister S.Batzorig agreed that organizing such a meeting would help support cooperation between the businesses of the two countries and expressed his support.
