President Xi Jinping’s visit to Mongolia is the first by a Chinese head of state in 11 years. This year also marks 65 years since China and Mongolia established diplomatic relationship. China has been the biggest trade partner and investor in Mongolia in the past 10 years.
Bilateral trade hit 6 billion US dollars in 2013, which is half of Mongolia’s total foreign trade figure. The Chinese ambassador to Mongolia, Wang Xiao-Long said President Xi’s visit will open a new chapter in ties.
"The goals of this visit are to enhance mutual trust, deepen friendship, and boost cooperation between China and Mongolia. I believe Xi Jinping’s state visit will be a milestone for the development of relations between the two countries. Mongolia has gone to great efforts to arrange the visit. Several cultural exchange events are scheduled to let Mongolian people know more about China and Chinese culture. As well as to showcase their own unique nomadic culture to President Xi Jinping and Chinese delegations. Both China and Mongolia are strongly willing to enhance mutual cooperation. I suppose President Xi Jinping’ visit to Mongolia will take the two countries’ ties to a new era. Cooperation will also be raised to a new level, whether it’s in terms of politic trust, economy and trade collaboration, as well as people-to-people and cultural exchanges," said Wang Xiaolong, Chinese ambassador to Mongolia.
