Ulaanbaatar /MONSTAME/ Minister of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry Ch.Ulaan met with Minister of Agriculture and Forestry of the Republic of Turkey Bekir Pakdemirli.

Emphasizing that the two countries have long-standing friendly relations, the Turkish Agriculture Minister said there is a breadth of opportunities to expand investment, trade and economic cooperation and undertook to work on that. Specifically, he was interested in signing a health protocol for the export of Mongolian meat and meat products to Turkey and importing a great amount of leather, hides, and medicinal plants from Mongolia.

Minister Ch.Ulaan informed the Turkish side of Mongolia’s agricultural export policy and noted that the country is closely partnering with the World Organisation for Animal Health in animal health to have the western region of Mongolia declared free of animal diseases within the first quarter of 2020. He also noted that Mongolia surely has both the capacity and interest in exporting leather and hides to Turkey.
