A Russian delegation headed by the Mayor of Novosibirsk, Mr Anatoly Lokot are currently visiting Ulaanbaatar. Since they arrived in the Mongolian capital on 18th, they have already had a meeting with the Mayor of Ulaanbaatar, Mr E.Bat-Uul, during which they discussed matters of joint co-operation.
At the beginning of the meeting, Mayor E.Bat-Uul said: “I visited Novosibirsk in October 2015 and signed a twin-city memorandum. Builders from Novosibirsk have contributed much to the construction of Ulaanbaatar. For this reason, we will continue to co-operate – primarily on the repair and renovation of old buildings in UB. We really need your experiences and management. We appreciate your support and co-operation in this work”.
In reply, Mayor Anatoly Lokot said: “We will continue to co-operate and provide support to the construction, in every way possible. We intend to totally update the panel constructed apartments in UB. Firstly, we plan to work on the preparation of experts and conducting a financial and quantity survey in order to assess how much will be required for the construction. Assuming the financial issues are solved, we will commence work. In addition to the apartments, we will also co-operate on road repair, agriculture and public utilities”.
It should be noted that most of the older buildings in Ulaanbaatar, such as those on Peace Avenue, were built according to Soviet construction practice using concrete panels.
