On 7 October 2020 the Energy Charter Secretariat’s Knowledge Centre delivered a virtual training on energy transit for the government officials of Mongolia to support UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific activities to strengthen sub-regional connectivity in East and North-East Asia through effective economic corridor management.

Prior to the training, the Secretariat developed a training module comprising of learning materials, reference reading and case studies on energy security and the role of transit as well as organisational and regulatory aspects of natural gas transit. An interactive session brought together over fifty participants from the government of Mongolia involved in the implementation of the Economic Corridor Programme, including representatives of the Investment Research Centre under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Energy and other related agencies and policy institutes working on energy.

Mongolia is a founding member of the Energy Charter Process, a member of the Task Force on Regional Energy Cooperation in Central and South Asia (RECA) and will assume the chairmanship of the Energy Charter Conference in 2022.
