On Tuesday, the Fourth Forum of the Association of Experts Centers of China, Mongolia, and Russia started in the Mongolian capital city of Ulaanbaatar, which was devoted to the building of an economic corridor with the participation of the three countries.
As the Chinese news agency Xinhua notes, during a two-day event, about 120 experts and officials from Russia, Mongolia, and China have been sharing their proposals and views on how to intensify the process of the establishment of the economic corridor China-Mongolia-Russia, as well as to strengthen the tripartite cooperation.
“The tripartite economic corridor, which is an important part of the China One Belt, One Road Initiative, is associated not only with the economy but also with such areas as culture, science, tourism”, said Yadmaa Tumurbaatar, director of the National University of Mongolia.
Three panel discussions on cooperation in the fields of energy, transport, education, culture, science, technology, and socio-economic issues were held at the forum dedicated to the topic “China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor: Innovation and Joint Development”.
The first meeting of the forum was held in 2015 in Mongolia. In 2016, it was hosted by China, while in 2017 it was Russia that provided the venue for the meeting.
