Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. Previously, the second Compact agreement between the Government of Mongolia and US Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) was authenticated, with Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh and US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo signing MCC USD 350 million compact.

In the frameworks of the feasibility study that was done by MCC, the corporation presented two types of licenses for Groundwater Modeling System (GMS) software to the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. “The GMS is vital in accurately defining the output of the aquifer, currently available as well as new water resources for water extraction. It can also define the water extraction amount by calculating the number of days the Tuul river have less water when more water is pumped and showing the linkage between surface water and groundwater in detail,” said Head of the Land Management and Water Policy Coordination Department of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism Sh.Myagmar and expressed his gratitude.
