By E.OYUNDARI

At the regular meeting of the national council organizing the 2016 Asia Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit, chaired by Prime Minister Ch.Saikhanbileg, council members discussed financing for transportation and communications during ASEM, as well as preparation for the airport to receive foreign delegates.
As of the first ten months of 2015, partial construction at Chinggis Khaan International Airport, the expansion of the airport’s international passenger hall, construction of a new transit hall, and construction of nine new hangars for 4C model aircrafts is at 90 to 100 percent of completion. Some roads included in the travel routes of foreign delegates after their arrival in the city are to be renovated and improved with lighting and drainage systems. At the meeting, Justice Minister D.Dorligjav spoke about the decision to establish a new air traffic control center.
Expenses during ASEM and spending for preparations for the summit are being financed by the state budget, and the national council says it plans to resolve some financing with aid and loans from foreign countries.
According to preliminary registration, close to 4,000 foreign delegates, including the state heads of 51 countries, high ranking foreign parliamentarians, leaders of international organizations, and press correspondents, are to arrive in Ulaanbaatar next July to attend the ASEM Summit.
The summit is held to addresses political, economic, and cultural issues, with the objective of strengthening the relationship between Europe and Asia in a spirit of mutual respect and equal partnership.
