The parties discussed cooperation matters and exchanged experiences in the field of government digitalization, reaching an agreement to launch joint programs. Furthermore, an agreement was achieved on the creation of a joint roadmap for bilateral partnership aimed at enhancing the legislative framework for IT companies, as well as exploring potential cooperation in the implementation of government software products across sectors such as the economy and industry.

 

In addition, the delegation from the Ministry presented Uzbekistan's IT potential and the incentive programs that would enable major Mongolian tech companies to establish their headquarters in our country and gain access to new markets. Representatives from Uzbekistan also showcased AI-based projects, particularly the MyID ecosystem and its capabilities.

 

 

A meeting was also held with the Director of the National IT Park of Mongolia, J.
