A training session on the subject of ‘Project Management and Feasibility Studies’ was conducted by Dr. Norbert Wagener for Mongolian government representatives and executives of the Mongolian transport sector on December 15, 2020 on behalf of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).
Conducted as an online session under COVID-19 conditions, the participants were able to follow the lecture in English and with simultaneous Mongolian translation and to prepare specifically with the help of scripts, case studies and exercises provided in advance. The session was part of the UN program ‘Strengthening Subregional Connectivity in East and North-East Asia through Effective Economic Corridor Management’.

The participants paid special attention to the topic of feasibility studies. The background is the preparation of infrastructure projects in Mongolia. As part of the Russia-Mongolia-China economic corridor, a priority rail project is the double-track expansion and electrification of the central north-south railway line ‘Ulaan Ude-Naushki-Sukhbaatar-Ulaanbaalar-Zamiin Uud-Erlian-UlaanTsav-Janchkhuu-Beijing-Tianjin’. In the first step, a feasibility study is planned for this. This railway line will serve not only for transit traffic, but above all will also connect the Mongolian economy with Russia and the Chinese port of Tianjin.
