Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird concludes his visit

Trans. by M.ZOLJARGAL

Foreign Affairs Minister of Canada John Baird returned home on Friday after a two-day visit to Mongolia. Baird paid a visit to the President of Mongolia, Ts.Elbegdorj, on Thursday and spoke about joint efforts to strengthen the effectiveness of Mongolia’s non-governmental organizations. This discussion began at the 7th Ministerial Conference of the Community of Democracies, which Mongolia hosted last year.
The meeting took place shortly after the President of Mongolia came back from his visit to Japan.
Baird and the president also exchanged thoughts on international and regional partnerships and talked about expanding cooperation on state service reform, expanding the student exchange program between Mongolia and Canada, and concluded an investment treaty.
He also met Deputy Speaker of the Parliament M.Enkhbold and Minister of Economic Development N.Batbayar, calling on them to actively participate in carrying out the discussed plans, rather than waiting.
The Canadian Foreign Minister also watched traditional Naadam celebrations and games at Chinggisiin Khuree tourist camp after his meetings, to learn more about the most popular Mongolian holiday.
