J.Erdenebat, the Prime Minister of Mongolia, received Wednesday John Langtry, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Australia to Mongolia, in the State House.

In noting that the 45th anniversary of the Mongolia-Australia diplomatic relations will be celebrated next year, the Premier emphasized the bilateral friendly relations have been widening in the fields of education, investment, mining and agriculture.

In turn, the Ambassador said his country started to grant governmental scholarships to Mongolian students from 1994, and about 440 Mongolians have been trained in Australia so far with the Australia Awards scholarships.

“As Australia is one of the leading countries in preparing professionals especially for the mining industry, the country is possible to resume the scholarship program for Mongolian students,” Langtry said.

Since the government actions program sets out making environment for mining investors better as one of its main goals, mega projects are high on the list of priorities, Erdenebat underlined. He also talked about his tour last weekend to the Oyu Tolgoi mine in Umnugobi (South Gobi) province to get familiar with the mine’s activities and construction works in underground mine.
