Conference Conference "Historical and Contemporary Trends in Relations between Russia and Mongolia"

An international scientific conference "Historical and Modern Trends in Relations between Russia and Mongolia: Towards the 100th Anniversary" was held in Vladivostok on September the 2nd, 2021, within the framework of the 4th Eastern Economic Forum.

The organizers of the scientific event were the Institute of Oriental Studies (the Russian Academy of Sciences), the Russian Historical Society, and foundation “The History of Motherland”.

The main directions of the scientific forum were: the history of diplomatic relations, Russian-Mongolian military, trade, and economic cooperation; humanitarian factors of interaction in Russian-Mongolian relations: education, science, culture, archaeological research, inter-archival activities, and museum collections.

The main attention of the conference participants was drawn to a key moment in the interstate relations history - the Agreement signing between the RSFSR government and the People's Government of Mongolia on the friendly relations establishment (November the 5th, 1921). 
This agreement laid the legal basis for bilateral interaction and played an extremely important role for the political, economic, and cultural brotherhood of the two countries .. 

Within the framework of the plenary session and three sections, the representatives of the international expert community, public sector, and business discussed the successes achieved, problems and further prospects for bilateral cooperation.

Sergei Naryshkin, the chairman of the Russian Historical Society, noted opening this event:“Today Russian-Mongolian relations, that have survived a turbulent century of trials, are called upon to reach a qualitatively new level of strategic partnership,” and he added:“The dialogue between Russian and Mongolian scientists will contribute to the achievement of this common goal". 

Igor Pavlov, the Director of the Eastern Economic Forum, was of the same opinion.  He emphasized that Roscongress understood the importance of dialogue between business and scientists and gave great value to strengthening the scientific component of the Forum's program.
