Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Mongolia’s Minister of Environment, Green Development and Tourism N.Battsereg MP Tuesday held talks with Mr Miklos Sesztak, the Hungarian Minister of National Development.

They discussed ways of collaborating in the biggest projects on renewable energy, water management and tourism, and concurred to scrutinize these matters at a regular meeting of the intergovernmental commission.

Battsereg said his Ministry urgently needs a technological support from highly developed countries, for "we should produce energy from renewable sources and reduce greenhouse gas".

Mongolia could also cooperate with Hungary in augmenting biomass, in reducing desertification and increasing forest areas, Mr Battsereg said. Another way of working together may be an implementation of a 2.5 million US dollars worth project on creating a complex network of monitoring underground and surface water near basin of the Kherlen River, he added.

After this, Mr Battsereg officially invited the Hungarian Minister to the High-Level Tourism Ministerial Summit of 33 countries along Eurasian Silk Road as well as to the first forum of nomadic tourism, which are scheduled this October 2016 in Ulaanbaatar.

In response, Mr Sesztak thanked him for the meeting and said the two Ministries can cooperate in eco-energy sector, Hungary is experienced in the renewable energy sphere.

He accepted the proposal of the Mongolian Minister and said again that a possibility exists to cooperate in sectors of solar energy, biomass and underground heat.
