An operational meeting of Ulaanbaatar city officials was held on January 11 and was led by D.Sumiyabazar, Governor of the Capital City and Mayor of Ulaanbaatar . At the beginning of the meeting, the Governor noted that 2022 will be a year dedicated to the prosperity of the citizens, and stressed that he will focus on increasing jobs, income, and employment.

During the last meeting, the Mayor gave instructions in 11 areas, and the implementation process is at 90 percent. For example, tasks have been assigned to relevant officials for preparing the provision of refined coal briquettes to vulnerable groups. Accordingly, it was decided that 6,098 households would be surveyed and  provided with refined coal briquettes between January 11 and February 20.

At the end of last year, the Capital city governor revoked the license requirement of 74 services, allowing them to obtain their licenses online thus eliminating the need to contact government officials. Within this framework, more than 7,000 citizens have visited the www.ulaanbaatar.mn website and more than 200 citizens have registered. The Governor also instructed the relevant officials to create opportunities for citizens to participate in Tsagaan Sar trade fairs.

Development works will begin on April 1

“Development works will begin by the 1st of April. Preparations must be completed by March 15. Ulaanbaatar must be a pedestrian-friendly city. We need to update the standards of sidewalks and create conditions and opportunities for citizens to travel freely.” said the Governor.

More than 20,000 households in Ulaanbaatar are wintering as temporary residents

D.Ikhbayar, Deputy Governor of the Capital City in charge of Green development and Reduction of Air and Environmental Pollution, said, “Since December 30, a total of 13 types of inspections have been conducted. Laboratory tests were carried out on petrol at gas stations, measurements were taken from coal stoves as well as the exhaust fumes from public transportation vehicles. As a result, an issue of fuel and coal stove compatibility has arisen. Residents are using non-standard home stoves that cause gas leakages. Work has begun to approve the stove standard. It is necessary to use full, double combustion and low fumigation stoves. We will operate six moving stations at high altitudes.”

This year, more than 20,000 households in Ulaanbaatar are wintering as temporary residents. This has increased fuel consumption by about 60,000 tons.
