Prime Minister’s weekly meeting sums up March projects and plans for April

By M.ZOLJARGAL

Prime Minister N.Altankhuyag shared information about national projects completed in March and his plans for April with journalists during his “30 Minutes with the Prime Minister” weekly meeting on Thursday.
In detail, he worked closely on projects to increase exports in February and March, and plans to meet delegates from each sector regarding export matters. Those businesses or individuals whose projects were approved for a national endorsement program have been approved by commercial banks are now able to receive loans from the Development Bank of Mongolia, he reported.
The Mongolian Economic Forum was held for the fifth year last week and focused on what to create as Mongolian national brand products, while the talks last year were about defining a national brand.
Many businesses – tailoring factories for instance – which received loans from the Chinggis Bond fund have expanded their operations, which last year’s forum anticipated.
Each topic discussed at the forum was aimed at improving planned works to be completed in the near future. The organizers hosted the forum with new standards in an innovative way.
Mongolia is currently importing most of its construction materials. To the delight of many, three big construction material manufacturing factories will open by 2015. A cement factory in Khutul soum also received financing from the Chinggis Bond. The factory used to produce around 300,000 tons of cement per year and will start producing one million tons of cement starting this year. By 2015, Mongolia will fully meet its domestic needs for cement, the Prime Minister reported.
Many projects are also planned for April regarding the training of skilled workers.
The Prime Minister said, “Discussion about diminishing air pollution is taking place twice a week in my room. Though winter time is coming to its end now, several trials are running.”
From the Prime Minister’s 50 billion MNT project budget, 25 billion MNT was spent on opening medical diagnostic centers in 11 provinces. All 11 diagnostic centers will be opened by Monday. The province access is expected to decrease patient inflow to Ulaanbaatar for diagnoses.
Four province centers were connected to Ulaanbaatar with paved roads with financing by the Chinggis Bond. This year, six more provinces will acquire the roads with the same financing.
Buyant-Ukhaa apartment town was also built from the Chinggis Bond fund. Apartments for 1,000 households in the provinces will also be partially financed by the bond.
The Prime Minister also noted that the government is trying to increase the nation’s coal export rate.
