The UB Post - - POLITICS -

On Fri­day, Cab­i­net Sec­re­tariat G.Zan­dan­shatar re­ceived In­dian del­e­gates led by Pankaj Ku­mar, an ad­vi­sor on in­fra­struc­ture pol­icy to the In­dian Min­istry of Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs, at the State Palace.

At the be­gin­ning of the meet­ing, the Cab­i­net Sec­re­tariat ex­pressed his sat­is­fac­tion with Mon­go­lia’s co­op­er­a­tion with In­dia based on his­toric and cul­tural ties and demo­cratic val­ues. He noted that the coun­tries share com­mon val­ues in pro­mot­ing re­gional and in­ter­na­tional peace and sta­bil­ity.

G.Zan­dan­shatar stated that the Mon­go­lian gov­ern­ment seeks to build a petroleum re­fin­ery through a loan from the gov­ern­ment of In­dia, and un­der­lined that the petroleum re­fin­ery will be an im­por­tant bridge of eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries.

Ku­mar noted that a com­pre­hen­sive fea­si­bil­ity study for a project to build a re­fin­ery and pipe­lines is in progress, as well as a project to open an in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and out­sourc­ing cen­ter in Ulaan­baatar.

The In­dian del­e­ga­tion ex­pressed hopes that Cab­i­net Sec­re­tariat G.Zan­dan­shatar will fo­cus on ac­cel­er­at­ing the projects by in­struct­ing min­istries and gov­ern­ment agencies in charge of the projects. Ku­mar added that In­dian del­e­gates con­duct­ing stud­ies on projects and pro­grams in Mon­go­lia are col­lab­o­rat­ing with Mon­go­lian gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials by hold­ing work­shops and other ac­tiv­i­ties.
