Prime Minister U.Khurelsukh today met with representatives of scientific field and shared views on current condition and perspective of the sector.

At the meeting, the scientists and scholars requested to raise investments in the sector and their salary. They also asked the Government to have orders executed by Mongolian Academy of Sciences and its institutes, set up unified laboratory and park of MAS, cut customs duty on equipment and devices required for the research and studies as well as render support on developing Mongolian studies by organizing enlightenment activities based on heritage and customs.

"The Government is in urgent need to collaborate with the scholars and scientists. Therefore, a decision was made to organize a national consultation in September to discuss pressing issues and ways to resolve them," added the PM.
