Partnership and Cooperation Agreement between the European Union and Mongolia enters into force
On 1 November, the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA) between the European Union and Mongolia enters into force. The High Representative/Vice-President, Federica Mogherini said: “The European Union and Mongolia are consolidating their strong ties, based on shared values and interests, and a common will to work more closely together. The entry into force of our Partnership and Cooperation Agreement, combined with the establishment of a European Union Delegation in Ulaanbaatar, which will take place in the coming days, consolidates existing areas of cooperation and engagement, and deepens and diversifies relations further in areas of mutual interest, for the sake of our peoples.” Replacing the 1993 Agreement on trade and economic cooperation, the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement strengthens the existing relationship between the EU and Mongolia, consolidates existing areas of cooperation and engagement, and deepens and diversifies relations further in areas of mutual interest. The entry into force of the PCA coincides with the opening of an EU Delegation in Mongolia, for which implementing the Agreement will be a top priority. A full press release is available online. More information on EU-Mongolia relations is available on the website of the EU Delegation to Mongolia and a factsheet on the new Agreement is available online.
