Image Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ October 16, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Petition held a hearing on implementation of the parliamentary resolution N74, particularly on works to move tannery factories to new zone and current condition of Khargia sewage treatment plant.

According to the Parliamentary resolution N74, all tannery factories, running operation in Ulaanbaatar should be moved out by December 31 of this year, as the factories deliver unfiltered or not properly filtered wasted water to the sewage plant, being one of sources that pollutes the Tuul River.

J.Batbayasgalan, Deputy Mayor of Ulaanbaatar in charge of green development and air pollution, made a report and answered to questions of MPs. He said that land of 160 hectares was allotted in Emeelt to establish a light industrial and technological park by an order of Ulaanbaatar Mayor in 2015. However land of 26.5 hectares, which was allocated for ownership to 513 citizens by an order of Ulaanbaatar Mayor in 2016, overlapped the land of the park. “Therefore the citizens’ landownership issue will be resolved by a meeting of the council of Ulaanbaatar Mayor. Organizations in charge of establishing the park and resolving land ownership have been given instructions,” said J.Batbayasgalan.

The Standing Committee on Petition will give a direction again to the Government, reflecting proposals and conclusions of the discussion.
