On May 30, Cabinet discussed proposed amendments to the State Policy on Railway Transport and approved their submission to Parliament.

If the proposed amendments are approved by Parliament, a 280-kilometer railway from Zuunbayan to Khangi and a 780-kilometer railway from Erdenet to Arttsuuri will be built.

The Zuunbayan-Khangi railway would primarily be used for iron ore transport. The Erdenet-Artssuuri railway would connect to the Kyzyl-Kuragino railway line, which crosses through Kyzyl in the Tuva Republic. Officials hope that this will open a transit transport corridor linking Asia and Europe, and will help provide Mongolia with access to new markets and seaports.
