Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia in Surrey

The Deputy Prime Minister of Mongolia has visited Kingston to determine if his country should base its Olympic team in Surrey during the London 2012 Games.

The Mongolian delegation was a guest of Surrey County Council at County Hall on Wednesday morning before being taken on a tour of some of the county's sport facilities including Bisley, Surrey Sports Park and Guildford Spectrum.

The visit by Deputy Prime Minister Miyegombo Enkhbold and senior government and sport officials was also an opportunity to strengthen business and cultural ties with Mongolia following a previous visit to Surrey in February.

Denise Saliagopoulos, Surrey County Council's Cabinet Member for Community Services and the 2012 Games, said: "We were delighted to welcome our friends from Mongolia.

"During these difficult economic times the county council must do its bit to help local businesses and London 2012 offers us a golden opportunity to do this.

"We've been nurturing relationships with foreign nations to encourage them to base their Olympic teams in Surrey during the Games.

"However, we want these relationships to have a lasting legacy long after the last medal has been won. The work the county council is doing now will enhance business links between Surrey companies and foreign firms in years to come. We also want to enhance cultural links, particularly among our schools, so our children can learn more about the world around them."
