Ovorkhangai, January 24 /MONTSAME/. In the framework of the Mongolian Government's “New Revival Policy”, the “Open Uvurkhangai'' program has been developed with the aim of keeping the balance of development of the city and the countryside.
On January 20, an open meeting was held among the local administrations, civil organizations, private sectors, and public representatives to share their suggestions for the program.
