AKIPRESS.COM - Speaker of Mongolian Parliament Gombojav Zandanshatar on June 10 met with a delegation of the Asian Development Bank led by Vice-President (Operations 2) Ahmed M. Saeed, Montsame reports.

Speaker Zandanshatar highlighted the role of the ADB in Mongolia’s social and economic development over the past two decades.
