RU EN

On 8 December 2016, Oleg Belozerov, President of Russian Railways, held a working meeting with Dangan Ganbat, Mongolia's Minister of Roads and Transportation. The meeting took place in Moscow.

During the meeting, Oleg Belozerov and Dangan Ganbat discussed the key issues around the current activities and future development of the Ulaanbaatar Railbus. These are aimed at implementing the programme to create a Russia - Mongolia - China economic corridor and develop Mongolia's transit potential.

"Russian Railways is taking all possible steps to attract additional volumes of freight transit to the Ulaanbaatar Railbus," said Oleg Belozerov. The President of Russian Railways noted the importance of joint work in this direction.

The parties agreed that implementing the programme to establish a Russia - Mongolia - China economic corridor would require active trilateral cooperation with China.

At the end of the meeting, Oleg Belozerov and Dangan Ganbat signed a protocol to the general meeting of shareholders of the Ulaanbaatar Railbus which confirmed the results of the Ulaanbaatar Railbus's production and financial activity in 2015. They also agreed on the distribution of dividends in the Russian and Mongolian national budgets.

Since 2009, Russian Railways has been managing the Company's stake in Ulaanbaatar Railbus. Experts at Russian Railways helped Ulaanbaatar Railbus to emerge from a crisis and stabilise its financial position.

During a visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Mongolia, Russian Railways and Mongolia's Ministry of Roads and Transportation signed a strategic partnership agreement on 3 September 2014 for the modernisation and development of Ulaanbaatar Railbus.

The modernisation of the Ulaanbaatar Railbus will ensure the necessary increase in capacity which is needed to meet the demand for the transportation of Mongolian goods, primarily raw materials, and to develop long-term transit traffic between China, Russia and Europe.

The programme to create an economic corridor linking Russia - Mongolia - China was signed in the presence of the presidents of the three countries on 24 June 2016 in Tashkent the capital of Uzbekistan. It provides for the implementation of seven development projects of the railway network in Mongolia, the most important of which is the development of the Central Railway corridor (Ulan-Ude - Naushki - Sükhbaatar - Ulaanbaatar - Dzamyn-Ude - Erenhot), which is considered the main transit route.
