The UB Post - - Politics - By T.BAYARBAT

Pres­i­dent Kh.Bat­tulga held an an­nual meet­ing with res­i­dent and non-res­i­dent am­bas­sadors of the Euro­pean Union (EU) and its mem­ber states to Mon­go­lia on Thurs­day to dis­cuss co­op­er­a­tion is­sues be­tween Mon­go­lia and EU.

Some 21 am­bas­sadors of EU and its mem­ber states, in­clud­ing Ger­many, Italy, Aus­tria, and the Nether­lands at­tended the meet­ing.

On be­half of the am­bas­sadors, Am­bas­sador of EU to Mon­go­lia Tra­ian Lau­ren­tiu Hris­tea gave re­marks, in which he noted that EU at­taches im­por­tance to its re­la­tions with Mon­go­lia.

Am­bas­sador Hris­tea un­der­scored the am­bas­sadors’ com­mit­ment to pro­mot­ing bi­lat­eral trade and in­vest­ment re­la­tions and work­ing to­wards the di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion of the Mon­go­lian econ­omy, as well as co­op­er­at­ing within the Frame­work Agree­ment on Part­ner­ship and Co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the Euro­pean Union and Mon­go­lia, which en­tered into force on Novem­ber 1, 2017.

The sides noted that both sides want to strengthen their eco­nomic re­la­tion­ship through the agree­ment.

Hris­tea stressed that the gov­ern­ment of Mon­go­lia should con­tinue to make more ef­forts for im­prov­ing in­vest­ment trans­parency and hold­ing more di­a­logues with EU and its mem­ber states to strengthen mu­tual co­op­er­a­tion.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, Pres­i­dent Kh.Bat­tulga ex­changed views on the devel­op­ment of Mon­go­lia’s tourism and agri­cul­ture sec­tors, and poli­cies and on­go­ing works which are be­ing car­ried out in these sec­tors with the am­bas­sadors.

The pres­i­dent ex­pressed his in­ter­est in invit­ing Euro­pean tourism and agri­cul­ture spe­cial­ists to Mon­go­lia and learn­ing from their ex­per­tise and their coun­tries’ ex­pe­ri­ences. He noted the im­por­tance of a pro­duc­tive cel­e­bra­tion of the 30th an­niver­sary of bi­lat­eral re­la­tions be­tween Mon­go­lia and EU, which will be marked next year.

At the end of the meet­ing, the am­bas­sadors stated that they hope bi­lat­eral re­la­tions and co­op­er­a­tion will be strength­ened in all ar­eas.
