B.Enkh-Amgalan expressed his satisfaction with the outcomes of MongoliaRussia Initiatives - 2018 Forum held in Ulaanbaatar in June, and noted that the two countries signed a railway transit transportation intergovernmental agreement that aims to enhance cooperation on freight transportation between the two countries by promoting a flexible tariff policy for particular times, and two countries’ specialists of forestry and headwater held a fruitful meeting to develop cooperation.

opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises to promote and sell their goods.

in the areas of meat and meat products, leather, wool and cashmere, fish products, wooden materials and petroleum to participate in the Mongolia-Russia Cooperation 2018 Forum, which is scheduled to take place in Ulaanbaatar in September. He noted that the forum will be of significant importance to developing collaboration between entrepreneurs of Mongolia and Khabarovsk, as well as the Russian Far East.
MP B.Enkh-Amgalan asked Lugovskoy to focus on seeking opportunities to pass Mongolia’s transit transportation through the Far East eventually. In response to the lawmaker’s proposal, the Russian delegation pledged to pay attention to his request.
He said, “As Mongolia has low forestry resources, the country needs to better protect its forests, which is why the country is interested in learning more about Russia’s experience.”
The lawmaker added that Khabarovsk's experience in protecting forestry resources and close cooperation in this area will be important for Mongolia.
Lugovskoy highlighted that the government of Russia attaches great importance to bolstering its relations with Mongolia in all sectors.
