President Kh. Battulga attended the Northeast Asia Regional Power System Interconnection (NARPSI) meeting held in Ulaanbaatar and delivered opening remarks on Friday. The president stated that the NARPSI plan is the most effective solution for the region and that Mongolia has the potential to produce electricity for 6 cents per kilowatt or less, which is three times cheaper than regional prices. Mongolia’s renewable energy resources, coal, and electricity supply could help meet the need for power during prime use hours in Japan and Korea, particularly with time zone differences. He asked for the active participation of international organizations and countries in the region to cooperate on the project, and he expressed his keen interest in launching the project and advancing its policies, mission, and agreements.
