Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ Prime Minister of Mongolia L.Oyun-Erdene delivered a speech via video at the opening ceremony of the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2021, which took place on April 20.

This year's conference, attended by more than 2,600 guests from over 60 countries and regions, is themed ‘A World in Change: Join Hands to Strengthen Global Governance and Advance Belt and Road Cooperation.’

In his speech, PM L.Oyun-Erdene highlighted that the Boao Forum is becoming an important dialogue platform that integrates multi-partite cooperation and efforts for ensuring regional sustainable economic development.

While congratulating the People’s Republic of China for its realization of goal to reduce poverty, which is outlined in the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, ten years ago, the PM underlined the importance of achieving economic growth sustainably, diversifying economy and making equal wealth distribution to end poverty.

Citing that the pandemic reminds us of how countries being deeply interrelated and the significance of mutual actions more than before, the PM presented Government’s ongoing policies and actions for its fight against the pandemic.

The PM also remarked that Mongolia would continue its policy to develop mutually beneficial cooperation and to take part in regional political and economic activities actively within the country’s priority directions including mining production, agriculture, energy, information technology, tourism, transport and logistics that are stated in Mongolia’s Vision 2050 long-term development policy.

The Forum is committed to promoting regional economic integration and bringing Asian countries even closer to their development goals. Initiated in 1998 by Fidel V. Ramos, former President of the Philippines, Bob Hawke, former Prime Minister of Australia, and Morihiro Hosokawa, former Prime Minister of Japan, the Boao Forum for Asia was formally inaugurated in February 2001.
