His Excellency Mr.John Langtry, Australian Ambassador to Mongolia, has been serving an honorary adviser to Women in Mining Mongolia since 2016. After serving first Australian Ambassador, he is leaving back to his home country this week.
Women in Mining Mongolia appreciates Mr. Langtry for his great support to various Mongolian causes such as improving some aspects of Mongolian healthcare, extended scholarship awards for aspiring Mongolians to study in Australia or developing the national NGO movement and people-to people diplomacy between Mongolia and Australia.
Thus, in late October 2018 our organization, WIMM, applied to the President of Mongolia, to award Mr. Langtry with Mongolian government honor. WIMM’s initiative was supported by 2 government agencies, several NGOs which have been having close business ties with Australian Embassy in Ulaanbaatar as well as Australian businesses working in Mongolia. WIMM’s application was accepted in late December 2018, and President of Mongolia awarded Ambassador Langtry with Friendship Medal last week.
Dear Ambassador, WIMM firmly believes that relations between Mongolia and Australia have very much benefited from your presence, experience and very loyal personality. We value our cooperation and will be looking forward to your future visits to Mongolia with new and exciting plans.
Chairwoman N.Tumenbayar and entire WIMM team.
