The ceremonial meeting of the parliamentary session will involve foreign and domestic guests and representatives virtually, due to the current pandemic situation. As for the parliament members, they will participate in a discussion on the development of Orkhon Valley, which was once an economic and cultural center connecting the east and west during the Mongol Empire.
