The UB Post - - POLITICS - By T.BAYARBAT

Mem­bers of the Par­lia­ment’s Stand­ing Com­mit­tee on Food, Agri­cul­ture and En­vi­ron­ment vis­ited the Min­istry of Food, Agri­cul­ture and Light In­dus­try on January 8 to over­see its op­er­a­tion and action plan for 2018.

Min­is­ter of Food, Agri­cul­ture and Light In­dus­try B.Bat­zorig in­tro­duced the stand­ing com­mit­tee mem­bers to the min­istry’s plans for this year.

The min­is­ter pointed out that eight bills on agri­cul­ture, light in­dus­try and food, harvest in­sur­ance, small and medium-sized en­ter­prise pro­mo­tion, and agri­cul­tural trade will be pro­posed to Par­lia­ment and 11 pro­grams re­lated food, agri­cul­ture, and small and medium-sized en­ter­prise have been planned in 2018.

He added that the min­istry is work­ing to carry out sev­eral pro­grams to re­duce im­ports and in­crease ex­port, en­hance the ca­pac­ity of do­mes­tic cash­mere fac­to­ries and improve the qual­ity of live­stock health this year.

L.Eldev-Ochir, the head of the stand­ing com­mit­tee, said, “As laws on the ge­netic re­sources of cat­tle and live­stock health adopted by Par­lia­ment last year will en­ter into force on June 1, the stand­ing com­mit­tee and min­istry will work to­gether to improve the im­ple­men­ta­tions of those laws.”

He added that the stand­ing com­mit­tee will fo­cus on im­prov­ing the leg­isla­tive process for new bills as nu­mer­ous changes were made in last year’s agri­cul­tural bills dur­ing the par­lia­men­tary re­views.
