The Ministry of External Affairs has completed a major upgradation and modernization of the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Centre for Excellence in Information & Communication Technology at Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. 

A team of experts from the National Informatics Centre (NIC) recently visited Mongolia for this purpose, a press release from the Ministry said.
The Centre was established by the Government of India in 2003 with a grant-in-aid of $ 1 million. It produces IT experts and helps develop software for Mongolia. It has become an important facilitator of communication between Ulaanbaatar and 21 regional centres. Members of Parliament utilize the Centre extensively to connect with their constituencies, the release said.
