As Mongolia imports 20,000-25,000 tons of fruit and vegetables annually, the government was tasked to satisfy 10% of demand by the national farmers by 2030. Still, only 7-8% of domestic demands are satisfied, leading to more expenditure on imported products until this day.
However, this year, 189,000 tons of potato and 90,800 tons of vegetables were collected in Mongolia. That means Mongolian growers have the domestic potato demand covered this year, for 100%.
During a conference in Ulaanbaatar, farmers said they need funds with low interest rates for construction of greenhouses for growing fruit and vegetables during winter season.
