U.S. – Mongolia Consultative Workshop Makes Progress on Strategic Trade Control Law
November 5-7, 2013
The U.S. and Mongolia held a consultative workshop on Export Control and Border Security from November 5-7 at the Government House. The workshop was jointly organized by the U.S. Department of State’s Export Control Office and the Mongolian Government’s Cabinet Secretariat. During the three days of the workshop, participants discussed and worked on the draft Law on Strategic Trade Controls that is being developed by a Mongolian Government working group. This workshop is part of a series of meetings supported by U.S. technical assistance, provided at the Mongolian Government’s request, to help it meet its obligations under UN Security Resolution 1540. The Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) program is designed to help prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), their missile delivery systems, conventional weapons, and related items by assisting foreign governments to establish and implement effective export control systems that meet international standards under UN Security Resolution 1540.
