“Hungary is a country that developed food and agricultural technologies well. Therefore, by cooperating with the country in agricultural sector, conditions will be created for Mongolia to create jobs, diversify its economy and get rid of dependency on mining,” Mongolian Foreign Affairs Minister Damdingiin Tsogtbaatar said.
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary Peter Szijjarto visited Mongolia today.
