During its regular session on August 1, the Cabinet instructed relevant ministers to take measures concerning the construction of the 13 kilometer Shiveekhuren-Ceke port railway to be completed by the end of 2019. It was decided that structural construction of the port railway will begin in the third quarter of 2018.

Officials hope that the railway will create new opportunities to export mining products from Nariinsukhait as port entry capacity will increase three-fold and transportation cost will decrease. Currently, coal trucks transport 10 million to 15 million tons of coal through the port annually. It is predicted that this number will rise to 25 million tons once the railway is opened.
