Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. The cabinet held its regular weekly meeting on June 16. At the meeting, the government made amendments to its resolution on restructuring aimags’ governors’ offices to change the title of the Education and Cultural Department to Educational Department and Cultural Division. 

Corresponding officials were charged with establishing new job positions in charge of arts and cultural affairs and take necessary measures to maintain normal operations in line with relevant regulations.
