Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ It was noted at the Visit Bulgan – 2022 Forum that Bulgan aimag set a goal for zero waste travel in 2021 and now the aimag is dedicating 2022 as the Year of Green Tourism and Ecotourism Promotion.    

In 2021, the aimag created campsites for local tourists, improved 4G network coverage to remote travel destinations, and placed waste sorting bins in villages for better waste management. This year, Bulgan aimag will provide policy support to tourism businesses, resorts, tourist camps, and restaurants, eateries and shops along roads, said the aimag’s Governor B.Ariun-Erdene at the opening of the forum.

Specialist of the Environment and Tourism Ministry’s Tourism Policy Coordination Department B.Odbayar attended the event and presented the government’s tourism promotion policies. As the aimag has been selected as the 2022 partner province of the International Travel Mart expo, the Environment and Tourism Ministry will support the aimag in expanding public and private partnerships, attracting tourists, and improving the incomes of locals.
