On 24th March, a ceremony took place in Canberra to present the gift of a Mongolian ger (yurt) to the Australian National University (ANU). This was a special gift from President Elbegdorj. The ceremony was one of the highlights of the visit of Foreign Affairs Secretary D.Gankhuyag to Australia and New Zealand. Mr Gankhuyag said: “Mongolia has been paying particular attention on developing Mongolian studies around the world. The ANU is doing much to contribute to Mongolian studies”. The Vice-Chancellor of ANU and Noble Prize Winner, Professor B.Schmidt, said that he is very happy to have the gift of a Mongolian ger, and said that it would be used for many events and ceremonies of the university. The Mongolian Ministry of Foreign Affairs gave a horse head fiddle, our country’s national instrument to the ANU. During the ceremony, a professional musician has played the instrument.
