Foreign Office Minister for Asia, Hugo Swire, has welcomed the appointment of Chimed Saikhanbileg as Prime Minister of Mongolia.

Mr Swire said:

“I congratulate Prime Minister Saikhanbileg on his appointment, and send him every good wish in his new role.

I am confident that his leadership will help drive forward the country’s rapid development, and that it will unlock the potential for greater foreign investment. I look forward to the appointment of the rest of his Cabinet.”
