Batbold holds wide ranging talks with visiting Czech Prime Minister

Jan Fischer, who arrived in Mongolia yesterday on the first visit here by a Prime Minister of the Czech Republic since 1993, has held long ranging talks with Prime Minister S.Batbold. The visit takes place on the 60th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relationship between the two countries.

Welcoming his guest, the Mongolian Prime Minister expressed his confidence that the visit will strengthen the relationship between the two countries and hoped the Czech Republic will act as a bridge between Mongolia and the EU. He wanted to learn how the Czech attained European Union standards in a very short time. Once Mongolia could do this, it will receive international trust and that, together with reduced production costs, will help the Mongolian economy to grow. It will help increase Mongolia’s trade cooperation with EU countries where Mongolia can export 7,200 types of products without paying customs duty. He also asked for the Czech Republic’s support in getting Mongolia’s name deleted from the European Commission’s list of countries with a non-market economy.

The discussions covered wide areas of politics, trade, economy, defense, infrastructure, energy, environment, agriculture and health. Bilateral trade has kept increasing in the last three quarters. Stressing the need for more cooperation between small and medium sized companies of the two countries, Batbold called for wider collaboration in defense, science, education, and urged the Czech Republic to allow more Mongolian students to attend higher education institutes there.

The two Prime ministers compared notes on the progress and impact of ongoing joint projects and programs and agreed to work on three projects in the near future. These are on water supply to Erdenet city, renovation of equipment in electricity plants, and building 100,000 household apartments. Batbold wanted cooperation in environmental issues, risk management in the mining sector, and water purification.
