The reg­u­lar po­lit­i­cal con­sul­ta­tive meet­ing of the Mon­go­lian Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs and Ital­ian Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs and In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion took place on Novem­ber 27 in Rome, Italy, to dis­cuss a wide range of is­sues re­gard­ing the co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries.

The meet­ing’s del­e­ga­tions were led by Mon­go­lian Deputy Min­is­ter of For­eign Af­fairs B.Battset­seg and Un­der­sec­re­tary of State for Italy’s For­eign Af­fairs and In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion Man­lio Di Ste­fano.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, both sides noted that as the two coun­tries started fo­cus­ing on de­vel­op­ing their re­la­tions and co­op­er­a­tion, the reg­u­lar con­sul­ta­tive meet­ing has been restarted, and in the fu­ture, the meet­ing will be of sig­nif­i­cant im­por­tance to en­hanc­ing mu­tual un­der­stand­ing.

At a meet­ing be­tween Speaker of Par­lia­ment M.Enkhbold and Mem­ber of the Ital­ian Se­nate An­to­nio Razzi held two years ago, the speaker ex­pressed Mon­go­lia’s in­ter­est in re­sum­ing the con­sul­ta­tive meet­ing of the two coun­tries in or­der to pro­mote the im­ple­men­ta­tion of agree­ments that have been reached.

At the Novem­ber 27 meet­ing, the sides talked about the cur­rent state of the two coun­tries’ re­la­tions in de­tail, and also dis­cussed op­por­tu­ni­ties for en­hanc­ing eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion, and ways to de­velop co­op­er­a­tion in the ar­eas of live­stock prod­uct pro­cess­ing, food and light in­dus­try, and re­new­able en­ergy.

Deputy Min­is­ter B.Battset­seg noted that the im­por­tance of the two coun­tries’ ac­tive and close co­op­er­a­tion in sup­port of set­ting up co­op­er­a­tion mech­a­nisms will help pro­duce value-added prod­ucts by tak­ing ad­van­tage of Ital­ian innovative agri­cul­tural tech­nol­ogy and Mon­go­lian live­stock prod­ucts.

The sides also dis­cussed col­lab­o­ra­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties for im­ple­ment­ing some projects and pro­grams.

In ad­di­tion, the deputy min­is­ter talked with the Ital­ian of­fi­cials about co­op­er­a­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties for car­ry­ing out a pro­ject to open a leather pro­cess­ing fac­tory in Darkhan-Uul Prov­ince.

Mon­go­lia is in­ter­ested in de­vel­op­ing its co­op­er­a­tion with Italy to en­hance bi­lat­eral eco­nomic col­lab­o­ra­tion, es­pe­cially to pro­mote mu­tual co­op­er­a­tion in the light in­dus­try, the tan­ning in­dus­try, and in­fra­struc­ture.

The gov­ern­ment be­lieves that there are a wide range of pos­si­bil­i­ties for Mon­go­lia to ex­port its agri­cul­tural prod­ucts pro­duced with Ital­ian tech­nol­ogy to some Asian and Euro­pean coun­tries.

Am­bas­sador of Mon­go­lia to Italy Ts.Jam­bal­dorj and of­fi­cials of the Ital­ian Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs and In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion par­tic­i­pated in the con­sul­ta­tive meet­ing.
