Deputy Prime Minister U.Enkhtuvshin met with heads of the General Agency for Specialized Inspection, National Emergency Management Agency, Agency for Standardization and Metrology, Agency for Fair Competition and Consumer Protection, and Altanbulag, Zamiin-Uud and Tsagaannuur free trade zones at the same time on January 17 to review their 2017 work performances and 2018 action plans.
The deputy prime minister highlighted that as this year will be an important year to implement the main part of the government’s 2016-2020 action plan, the government agencies need to focus on improving their performances this year. He noted that state agencies should provide legal, inspection, emergency response, and other recommendations to enterprises that could potentially violate laws due to lack of legal knowledge.
U.Enkhtuvshin told the agencies’ heads that they should pursue ways to bring investment from overseas by collaborating with international organizations that are similar to the Mongolian agencies rather than seeking funding from the state budget. He underlined that the government is keen to promote the agencies’ proposals to expand their international cooperation.
The deputy prime minister pointed out that he will concentrate on opening the Zamiin-Uud free trade zone within this year as scheduled since this is his key focus for the year.
