Over the past 10 years, Mongolians built more than 6000 km of auto road and around 1000 km of railways. This infrastructure will contribute to the Eurasian economy greatly. Therefore, I wish you all to cooperate in developing infrastructure that will link Eurasia through Mongolia, a country in Central Asia.”
