In August 2018 the three countries agreed to create the Mongolia-Russia-China Economic Corridor to facilitate the construction of railways, roads, and natural gas oil pipelines through Mongolia. In December 2019 a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop a proposal for the pipeline within six months was signed by by Ulziisaikhan Enkhtuvshin, Mongolia's deputy prime minister, and Alexei Miller, CEO of Gazprom.
