The Delegation of the European Union to Mongolia and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) organized a technical meeting on potential pilots for employment promotion with scope of scaling up and support of policy as part of the larger project on SDG-Aligned Budgeting to Transform Employment in Mongolia funded by the European Union. The technical meeting was held online with the participation of over 60 stakeholders and aimed at maintaining effective public-private partnerships with large scale youth employment potential in agriculture value chains and exploring possible ways to build competitive national Mongolian food brands in national and international markets. Mr. Traian Hristea, Ambassador of the European Union to Mongolia highlighted “The European Union is working together with the Government and our international partners to improve skills for employability especially for youth in the agriculture sector, to promote decent work and formal employment in the non-mining sector in Mongolia, with the aim to strengthen economic diversification.” Mr. Vinod Ahuja, FAO Representative in Mongolia emphasized the importance of the project to address the challenges faced in the agricultural value chains by promoting effective public-private partnership in areas with large-scale potential for youth employment and training. Results from these activities would contribute to policy and program development at national level apart from expanding opportunities and increasing worker productivity.
