Minister of Labor and Social Protection S.Chinzorig held a meeting with former Prime Minister of Romania Petre Roman on October 25 in Ulaanbaatar to talk about employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
At the beginning of their meeting, Minister S.Chinzorig thanked the former prime minister for participating in an international conference being held in Ulaanbaatar to share his experience about increasing employment opportunities for people with disabilities with Mongolians.
Minister S.Chinzorig introduced Roman to the government’s policy, document, actions and measures being executed for protecting and promoting the rights of people with disabilities.

He stated that in 2008, Mongolia joined the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2006, and Parliament adopted the Law on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2016, which was based on the fundamental principles of the convention.
