Hohhot /MONTSAME/ A forum on the Mongolia-China agricultural cooperation, manufacturing and processing of products has been held in Hohhot, Inner Mongolian Autonomous Region in frames of the Mongolia-China Expo.

P.Sergelen, Acting Minister of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry attended the forum, talking about a possibility of Mongolia to export meat.

“Mongolia has vast experience in animal husbandry. To the extent of a gradual increase in livestock number in Mongolia, the country is able to maximize the meat reserve and export 128.5 thousand tons of meat. As of present, 24 slaughtering houses and six processing factories have been licensed by inspection institutions of Russia, China, Vietnam and Iran. These factories will export meat, which is supplied from ten aimags after performing laboratory examinations,” the Minister underlined.

Deputy Director of the China’s Promotion Center for Agricultural Trade Zhang Shaowang pointed out that China is interested in buying Mongolian meat because of its freshness and hygiene. He said China is possible to render assistance to Mongolia for the animal husbandry as China has advanced technologies. He hopes that the Mongolia-China Expo would contribute to the bilateral cooperation in the agricultural sphere.
