MANDALGOVI, Mongolia, Oct.18 (Xinhua) -- A completed China-funded 330 kV power transmission and transformation project in southern Mongolia was on Friday officially handed over to the Mongolian side.

Mongolian Energy Minister Tserenpil Davaasuren and Chinese Ambassador to Mongolia Xing Haiming attended the handover ceremony held in Mandalgovi, capital of Dundgovi Province.

Work on the power line started in September 2017.

The 330 kv line is the highest-voltage electricity transmission and transformation line in Mongolia, Davaasuren said.

"We believe that the line will improve the reliability of power supply for major mines in the southern region of Mongolia, including Oyu Tolgoi copper-gold mine, reduce energy costs as well as a reliance on imported electricity and promote local economic and social development," he said.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Mongolia. Noticing a good momentum in the development of bilateral ties, Xing said, "The China-Mongolia comprehensive strategic partnership has been deepening."
