Speaker of the Parliament Zandanshatar Gombozhav received Ambassador of Australia to Mongolia Katie Smith.
Speaker Zandanshatar Gombozhav congratulated Katie Smith on her appointment as Ambassador and noted that Australia is an important partner of Mongolia in the Pacific region.
He advocated strengthening relations between Mongolia and Australia, expanding political dialogue and stimulating economic cooperation. In particular, he stressed that he was interested in expanding and developing cooperation in the field of education. More than 700 Mongolians have received higher education in Australia through the Australia Awards scholarship program since the early 1990s.
“We are interested in increasing the number of recipients of the Australian government scholarship. Education and Science Minister Enkh-Amgalan Luvsantseren recently visited Australia and the two sides exchanged views on teaching up to 50 students per year in Australia,” the Speaker added.
Ambassador Katie Smith thanked the Parliament’s Speaker for meeting with her and said that she sees an opportunity to expand and develop cooperation between two countries in all sectors, including the public and private sectors. She noted that the visit of the Minister of Education and Science of Mongolia in March last year was successful, and expressed hope for the success of the negotiations between the parties.
Zandanshatar said that the mining sector is one of the main pillars of the country’s economy and accounts for 92% of total exports. He thanked Australian investors for their important role in bringing Mongolia to the global mining market.
“In addition, the governments of Mongolia and Australia are implementing the Australian-Mongolia mineral resources cooperation program to ensure the sustainable growth of the Mongolian economy based on mineral resources. We want to continue the third phase of this program and benefit from it,” the Speaker noted.
He added that the Parliament passed the extractive industries transparency act and is working to make information related to the industry transparent to all workers.
The parties also exchanged views on the legal regulation of the tourism, investment and educational fields and agreed to further expand cooperation, the parliamentary press service reported.
