Xing Haiming, Chinese ambassador to Mongolia, Vice-Foreign Minister Luo Zhaohui, Hu Zucai, deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission, Li Chenggang, assistant minister of commerce, Mongolian Foreign Minister Damdin Tsogtbaatar, as well as relevant leaders of POWERCHINA attended the unveiling ceremony.

Located in the southeast of Ulaanbaatar, the 20.9-kilometer Nalaikh road upgrading project is the only trunk line and transportation hub connecting Ulaanbaatar city and Nalaikh district with the eastern provinces of Mongolia.

The existing road has been used for nearly 50 years. It has only two lanes and is in serious damage. After the completion of the upgrading project, it will be changed to four lanes in one direction, which will greatly ease the congestion of the road section, facilitate the entry and exit of Ulaanbaatar passenger and cargo transportation, as well as stimulate the surrounding economic growth.

The prime minister said that it is a key project linking the Gachuurt Crossroad to Nalaikh and the Choir Crossroad, which is also an important project in the current government planning, and is of great significance for promoting economic development and easing traffic congestion in the region.

With the support of the Chinese government, POWERCHINA has been making every effort to speed up the construction of the project, which has attracted great attention from the Mongolian public.

At the unveiling ceremony, the leaders of the Mongolian government and Ulaanbaatar praised POWERCHINA as a very powerful and internationally renowned construction company. They also expressed their gratitude to the construction teams of China and Mongolia who have made positive contributions to the construction of the project.
