On September 12, President of Mongolia Khaltmaagiin Battulga attended the extended session of the 4th Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Russia and addressed speech. The President mentioned that the scope of the forum and the level of its participants are broadening every year. He said, “While we aim to further strengthen high-level political relations, we also strive to align our development policy with those of regional countries and jointly implement major projects. For instance, we are currently working together to implement the ‘Mongolia-Russia-China Economic Corridor’. We are ready to cooperate on passing the planned natural gas pipeline from Russia to China through Mongolian territory. As I would like to thank President Putin for supporting Mongolia’s proposal, I express my hope that President Xi Jinping would also support this initiative.”

“In order to thoroughly explore the possibility of developing an economically viable cooperation, I would like to make a concrete proposal. I call upon the urgent and prompt commencement of the “North East Asian Super Grid” project which can share the load during the peak hours and will be a resource-efficient and optimal solution for supplying Northeast Asian countries with energy.”

“As the beginning of this super grid, I am pleased to announce that Mongolia and China are starting a joint project for energy complex and high-voltage transmission line. The complex will comprise of stations with an installed capacity of 5350 MW from solar, wind and coal sources. Moreover, a 1500 km long high-voltage direct current will be constructed. Research and feasibility study of the complex are completed and the construction work will commence shortly.”

Continuing his speech, the President said, “I consider the North East Asian Super Grid will open new development and cooperation opportunities for regional countries and become an important factor to strengthen confidence of the countries.
