Bank Name: State Bank

Account number: 341303432597

“Despite the ongoing donations and assistance given by Mongolian government and private organizations to the Chinese Embassy in Ulaanbaatar since January, we should give greater donations, involving more people. That is why we have opened the donations account” said Minister N.Tserenbat at the press conference. 


Minister of Foreign Affairs D.Tsogtbaatar mentioned that a large number of Mongolians have been taking the initiatives to provide emotional and material support to China. Therefore, the campaign organizers stepped in to compile those cash assistance into one account. 


“Apart from the government’s assistance to China, Ulaanbaatar City Governor’s Office, Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, China Alumni organization in Mongolia and the Democratic Party have already delivered their donations to China.” noted Minister D.Tsogtbaatar


The donations collected to the account will be reported to the public and delivered to the Chinese Embassy in Mongolia weekly.
