Europe – Asia Center: Insightful Discussions with H.E. Bold, Ambassador of Mongolia to Belgium, to Strengthen Collaboration

Brussels, June 18th, 2024

On Monday, June 17th, a distinguished delegation from the Europe-Asia Center, led by Vice-Chair Violeta Bulc, former EU Commissioner for Transport, along with Director for Europe Matic Gajsek and Project Coordinator Jonathan Schwestka, had the honor of meeting H.E. Luvsanvandan Bold, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Mongolia to the Kingdom of Belgium and the European Union.

During a productive and wide-ranging discussion, both parties exchanged views on current EU-Mongolia relations and voiced strong support for enhanced collaboration on several key issues, including critical rare earth materials, women empowerment, and the development of sustainable villages and rural areas. Ambassador Bold also expressed enthusiasm for Madame Bulc’s possible participation in the World Women's Forum in Ulaanbaatar, a gesture that was warmly received by Madame Bulc.

The meeting was followed by a special presentation of an exhibition celebrating the 35th anniversary of EU-Mongolia diplomatic relations, featuring photographs documenting significant milestones in their bilateral ties.

In a truly memorable conclusion to the visit, Ambassador Bold invited the Europe-Asia Center delegation to enjoy a traditional Mongolian throat-singing performance inside an authentic yurt.

Reflecting on the visit, Matic Gajsek, Director for Europe, stated, “I am deeply grateful to Ambassador Bold not only for his valuable insights and proactive stance on institutional cooperation but also for his exceptional hospitality in arranging this unforgettable performance by Mongolian musicians. I eagerly anticipate our future collaborations.”
