“Strategic Partnership” between Japan and Mongolia Should Discuss “Desert Community” Proposal

Mongolian President Elbegdorj has talked to Japanese Prime Minister Noda yesterday, at the occasion of forty years of diplomatic relations. There is a short report on those talks up at the Japanese Foreign Ministry (English version not yet available).

Elbegdorj expressed his desire to develop the “Strategic Partnership” between Japan and Mongolia.

I think it is about time to include the idea of large-scale renewable energy from the Mongolian Gobi deserts in the talks about the “Strategic Partnership”. I recall having proposed a “Desert Community” in my book “Energy from the Mongolian Gobi desert” earlier this year.
