15 August 2018

MONGOLIA - Within the framework of Memorandum of Cooperation between the Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI) and Tomsk Chamber of Commerce and Industry, a bilateral business meeting was held yesterday (14 August) in MNCCI. The meeting opens chances for businesses of the two countries to expand cooperation and increase volume of export.

According to Montsame, General Secretary of MNCCI E. Oyuntegsh said that the sides are organizing the business meeting for the fourth time and there are many examples of maintaining relations between the entities and increasing export.

Mr Oyuntegsh said, "We are exporting beef and horse meat to Russia mostly. The Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry reported that Russian import tariff on meat and value added tax will be raised to 70 per cent from January 2019.

"We believe that the heads of our two countries will meet at Eastern Economic Forum to be held in September and will reach an agreement on reducing tariff on meat export and establishing free trade zone."

Representatives from Tomsk city which leads the region in scientific, technological, energy, petroleum and natural gas production presented activities of their companies, business opportunities and expressed willingness to cooperate with Mongolian entities in supply of wheat, seam, pastry and cabel.

"The two Chambers of Commerce and Industry have been developing mutually beneficial cooperation for many years. At the meeting with the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry held yesterday, we expressed our interest to import beef from Mongolia.

"Although there are barriers in import and export of meat and meat product, the issue is in consideration of the Governments of the two countries," noted A.N.Belyaev, Head of Foreign Relations Department of Tomsk Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The representatives will get acquainted with the activities of national companies such as Nomin Holding, Gem International, Trust Trade, Mobicom, G-mobile, Talkh Chikher and Mill House.
