Mongolian-made PPE headed to the United States
The Government of Mongolia has donated 60,000 disposable medical supplies worth $ 1 million to the United States. The protective equipment is manufactured by the private domestic companies Munkhiin Tun LLC and ExMed LLC. It was a major milestone in public-private partnerships supporting domestic production.
O.Amartuvshin, President of the Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry emphasized that: At the initiative of the President of Mongolia, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Tsogtbaatar, contacted the United States to make the arrangements, and within the Chamber’s support organizing its member private companies, I am delighted that Mongolian products are going to the United States for humanitarian aid. This is a great occasion that demonstrates public-private partnerships, and I am very grateful to the government for supporting the private sector. He also said that if the government and the private sector work together, it will create more jobs and export more products.
The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to Mongolia S. Klecheski said, we believe that this special mission and first direct flight from Mongolia to the United States will be the beginning of our long-term cooperation. Our two countries have enjoyed excellent relations for more than 30 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations. But in the last two years, our strategic partnership has deepened. The mutual assistance of Mongolia and the United States in the fight against the epidemic is a clear example of a strategic partnership.
