Visit of Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, President of Mongolia, to José Manuel Barroso

94 views

Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, President of Mongolia, visited José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, on 2 February 2010 in Brussels. They discussed the state of relations between Mongolia and the European Union. Candidate of the Democratic Party, Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj won the election on 24 May 2009 to become Mongolia's first President to never have been a member of the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party. He was one of the leaders of the peaceful democratic revolution in 1990 that ended more than 65 years of communist rule. The European Commission supports Mongolia's chosen path of democracy and economic reform. In this context, the EC backs its 2008 National Development Strategy by supporting rural development, strengthening its human resource base and improving local governance. Through Partnership and Cooperation Agreement negotiations (PCA), the EU intends to deepen its bilateral relations with Mongolia and help in its transition from an agrarian to a mining based economy. The EU/Mongolia Strategy Paper for 2007-2013 aims to help improve living conditions in the countryside and slow down the rural exodus. Its main objective is to support poverty alleviation by allocating 80% of the cooperation budget to sustainable rural development. Additional support is likely to be in the areas of education and private sector development. The multi-annual indicative programme for the first four years (2007-2010) allocates 14 million euro to support these areas. Regional and thematic programmes are also available to provide grant support for appropriate organisations in Mongolia.
