IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto and the President of Mongolia have held high-level talks on measures to further streamline trade and professionalise the country’s road transport industry.
A rapidly evolving transit and transport hub, Mongolia can cement its land-linked status with tried-and-tested UN conventions and professionalisation, IRU Secretary General Umberto de Pretto stressed during his meeting with Ukhnaagiin Khurelsukh, the President of Mongolia.
Mongolia has already made significant development gains over recent years. IRU encourages Mongolia to continue acceding to other key UN conventions in addition to TIR and CMR to further elevate its role as a trade and transit hub.
Umberto de Pretto also emphasised that TIR is the key trade facilitation tool ensuring seamless cross-border movements and enabling the implementation of the WTO’s Agreement on Trade Facilitation and the UNESCAP’s Agreement on the Asian Highway Network.
