In a bid to boost cooperation with China amid the pandemic, Mongolia has introduced a temporary regulation called Green Gateway, which came into effect on Saturday, according to the Mongolian Ministry of Mining and Heavy Industry.

Minister Gelen Yondon said he hopes the regulation will help Mongolia increase its export of mining products, such as coal and copper concentrates, to China.
