Xi’s visit to Mongolia to strengthen beneficial cooperation, promote friendship(0)

Chinese President Xi Jinping will pay a state visit to Mongolia from Aug. 21 to 22, 2014. Ininterviews with the People’s Daily, people from different walks in Mongolia all think thiswill be a historic visit for both countries, and look forward to the progress this visit willbring to the relationship between China and Mongolia. Gombosuren, former foreign minister of Mongolia, says 2014 is the 65th year sinceMongolia established diplomatic relations with China. Both countries will have a lot ofcelebrations for this event. What’s more, this year is also the 20th anniversary of theestablishment of “China-Mongolia friendship and cooperation treaty”. The bilateral relationnow is in its best situation. With the visit of President Xi, there will be better and long-termstrategies for the development of the relationship between the two countries. He believesthat the neighborly relation will last much longer under deeper cooperation betweenMongolia and China. Butqimeg, a member of the Security and Foreign Policy Committee in Mongolia, tells thePeople’s Daily that with China’s fast development in economy, Mongolia as its neighbor haspaid great attention to it and is eager to learn and to be benefited from China’sdevelopment. In Mongolia, a lot of people are learning to speak Chinese so that they canunderstand China better. President Xi’s visit, according to Butqimeg, will enhance mutualunderstanding between the two peoples, and promote the development of politics,economy, and security. With people from the two countries having more communicationand understanding with each other, the bilateral relationship will become better as well.Benefited from China’ prosperity, people of Mongolia will also live better lives. Although the economy of Mongolia has been booming in the past several years, Butqimegstresses, dependence on mining industries would not support the development in the longrun. In the process of propelling other industrial developments, restructuring andupgrading economic structures, investments from China play a very important role. People of different occupations in Mongolia are expecting the arrival of President XiJinping, Chimedtseye Menerel with the Sino-Mongolian Friendship Association tells thePeople’s Daily, adding that being a neighbor of China, various industries in Mongolia will bebenefited and developed after this visit. He hopes there can be more agreements signedbetween the two countries and more Chinese cultures introduced to Mongolia so that thefriendship will be enhanced. Xuruhuu, the director of International Studies Institute of the Mongolian Academy ofSciences, thinks the development of relation with China is one of the priorities of Mongolia’sforeign policies, and of which economic and trade relations are the most important. The fastdevelopment of China is a very positive factor for Mongolia, and the cooperation betweenthe two countries in infrastructure construction and mining industries are muchanticipated. The chairman of the Young Entrepreneurs’Association in Mongolia says that China is theNo.1 trade partner of Mongolia. The visit of President Xi will definitely help a lot in theinvestments and trades between the two countries. He adds that he is expecting that moreagreements can be signed in transportation, logistics, ports and customs. China hasprovided great convenience for Mongolia in international transportation service, and hehopes there will be more cooperation in economic areas in the future.
