Jargal, head of the South-South Cooperation project, said Thursday the scheme, supported by both countries and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, had achieved significant results since it was launched three years ago.
The project was welcomed by local Mongolians, he told an agriculture forum here, adding the Mongolian government would travel to China to seek a second phase of the project.
The program focuses on joint development of Mongolia's food safety and promoting its green agriculture and animal husbandry.
It has offered training and study tours for hundreds of Mongolian technicians, provided agricultural equipment and sent Chinese technicians to Mongolia.
It has also served as a platform for business cooperation between the two countries in agriculture.
