The UB Post - - POLITICS -

The third po­lit­i­cal con­sul­ta­tive meet­ing of the for­eign af­fairs min­istries of Netherlands and Mon­go­lia was held on Novem­ber 10 in The Hague, Netherlands, to dis­cuss po­lit­i­cal af­fairs co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries.

The meet­ing’s del­e­ga­tions were led by State Sec­re­tary of the Mon­go­lian Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs D.Davaa­suren and Di­rec­tor of Asia and Ocea­nia Depart­ment of the Min­istry of Netherlands Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs Peter Pot­man.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, the sides dis­cussed ways to im­prove eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion, trade and in­vest­ment, as well as boost co­op­er­a­tion in agri­cul­ture, tourism, wa­ter man­age­ment, and cli­mate change. They noted the im­por­tance of im­ple­ment­ing fur­ther projects and pro­grams, which will be car­ried out in Mon­go­lia in con­nec­tion with the United Na­tions’ 2030 Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals and the Mon­go­lia-Euro­pean Union Frame­work Agree­ment on Com­pre­hen­sive Part­ner­ship.

Pot­man pointed out that as Netherlands in­vestors and en­trepreneurs have lim­ited ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion about the Mon­go­lian in­vest­ment and le­gal en­vi­ron­ments, Mon­go­lia needs to in­tro­duce Netherlands busi­nesses to pos­si­ble ar­eas for in­vest­ment that will help im­prove eco­nomic col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the two coun­tries.

The of­fi­cials noted the im­por­tance of or­ga­niz­ing the po­lit­i­cal con­sul­ta­tive meet­ing an­nu­ally, and agreed to host the fourth po­lit­i­cal con­sul­ta­tive meet­ing in Ulaan­baatar next year.

Netherlands of­fi­cials stressed that a busi­ness and po­lit­i­cal del­e­gates will at­tend the fourth meet­ing to study busi­ness pos­si­bil­i­ties and col­lab­o­ra­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties with Mon­go­lian en­trepreneurs.

They agreed to reg­u­larly or­ga­nize con­sul­ta­tive meet­ings be­tween the two coun­tries’ for­eign af­fairs min­istries, and dis­cussed is­sues re­gard­ing Mon­go­lian cit­i­zens liv­ing in the Netherlands.

The par­ties also ex­changed views on global and re­gional is­sues.
