Delegates from the State Great Hural (Parliament) of Mongolia headed by Chairman Zandaakhuu ENKHBOLD are attending the Fourth World Conference of Speakers of Parliament convened in New York, U.S. on August 31, 2015.

In the frameworks, Chairman Z.Enkhbold held a meeting with Speaker of the House of Representatives of Japan Mr. Tadamori Oshima on August 30, 2015.

At the beginning of meeting, Speaker T.Oshima said he was very happy to meet his counterpart on the occasion of the IV World Conference of Speakers of Parliament. Furthermore, he highlighted “Mr. Enkhbold's visit to Japan conducted last February was very fruitful to broaden bilateral relations and cooperation, where the parliamentary groups of the two legislative powers have been playing a significant role becoming a bridge. In July 2015, Japanese representatives have participated in the commemoration of the 25th anniversary of Mongolia's democratic revolution. Nevertheless, Japan gives a high priority to the current developing strategic partnership and believe to further expansion of relations between the two countries”.

Chairman of the Parliament of Mongolia Z.Enkhbold responded that he was glad to meet him on the eve of the IV Conference and further said, “One of the priorities of Mongolia's foreign policy is to deepen cooperation and to maintain good ties with Japan as considered Mongolia's third neighbor, besides, our country gives a high priority to the current developing strategic partnership relations. In recent years, bilateral collaboration and relationship as well as mutual trust have been broadened and strengthened. The Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) established between the two states is very important to bring cooperation into a newer level. I would like to thank the Prime Minster of Japan Mr. Shinzo Abe on proposing and carrying out his 'Dynamic' initiative to level-up bilateral economic cooperation. Mongolia is seeking to introduce Japanese investment and know-how based on the signed EPA and further to supply Japan and the third market with goods made in Mongolia that would open an opportunity to join a regional manufacturing network and economic relationships”.

At the meeting, members of the State Great Hural S.Batbold and Ts.Oyungerel, Permanent Representative of Mongolia to the United Nations, Ambassador S.Sukhbold and other officials from both sides were present.
