The Unicode Consortium and the Communications and Information Technology Authority of Mongolia co-organized the 3rd Unicode Mongolian Working Group Meeting on April 4th-5th, 2019.
President of Mongolia Khaltmaagiin Battulga today received the delegation of the Unicode Consortium that came to Mongolia to attend the meeting, including Lisa Moore, Vice President of the Unicode Consortium and Chair of the Unicode Technical Committee, Deborah Anderson, Technical Director of the Unicode Consortium, and Andrew Glass, technical expert.
President Battulga appreciated the active involvement of the Unicode Consortium in the encoding of the traditional Mongolian script and expressed his pleasure with the consensus that has been reached on retaining the traditional phonetic model of encoding the script.
Ms. Moore spoke about the Mongolian Working Group Meeting that took place in San Jose, the United States, during which it was concluded that a phonetic model would be used instead of a graphetic model. Therefore, more efforts will be directed towards simplification and enhancement of the phonetic model.
Regarding this matter, the delegation of the Unicode Consortium exchanged views with G.Uyanga, Human Rights and Civil Society Policy Advisor to the President, and the representatives of the National Council on Language Policy.
