Third Round of Negotiations on Japan-Mongolia EPA

The Japanese Foreign Ministry just announced that the third round of negotiations is scheduled for April 2 to 5 in Ulaan Baatar (note that I change the spelling of Mongolia’s capital as of this post, even if Wikipedia still has the old version). I have nibbled enough at learning Mongolian to know that “Ulan Bator” is just a completely wrong way to say “red hero”.

Topics on the agenda are plenty. Unfortunately none of them is large scale renewable energy in the Gobi desert, at least not on the list of topics disclosed by the Foreign Ministry.

That should change, in my humble opinion.
