Former President of Mongolia

The Kubuqi International Desert Forum, which shares the goals of the UN 2030 Agenda for Su stainable Development, is a huge step forward for the Belt and Road Initiative, proposed by Chinese President Xi Jinping. Set along the Belt and Road, Mongolia is threatened by ever-deteriorating drought and desertification. Therefore, I suggest that plagued areas learn from Chinese knowhow and expertise and promote international cooperation.
