Assistant Secretary for Economic and Business Affairs Manisha Singh travels to Mongolia August 11-19 to meet with government and business officials to bolster economic opportunities and increase bilateral trade. The visit follows Mongolian President Battulga’s meeting with President Trump at the White House on July 31, in which the leaders discussed the two countries’ strong Strategic Partnership.
