Croatian-Mongolian relations refers to the historic and current bilateral relationship between Croatia and Mongolia. Both countries established diplomatic relations on March 10, 1993.[1] Croatia is represented in Mongolia through its embassy in Beijing, China. Mongolia has an honorary consulate in Zagreb.

Prior to 1990, while Croatia was part of SFR Yugoslavia, six Mongolian students had graduated from Zagreb universities with degrees in tourism, economics and civil engineering.[2] Three medical doctors received advanced training in Croatia in 1994 and in 1996 with support from the World Health Organization. Two employees of the Cultural Heritage Center of Mongolia studied in Croatia in 2008 with a scholarship provided by the Croatian Ministry of Sciences and Education.[2]

In 2007, the two countries signed a memorandum of a cooperation, asserting a desire to strengthen economic and cultural ties.[3]

In 2008 Croatian President Stipe Mesić visited Mongolia for the first time,[4] at the invitation of Mongolian President Nambaryn Enkhbayar,[5] who said that Mongolia would support Croatia's bid to be a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.[2][6][7] Mesić and Enkhbayar agreed that there was "great potentials for cooperation in many areas, including education, oil resources exploitation, infrastructure development, water resources research, [and] exports of medicines".[8] While in Mongolia, President Mesić also met with Mongolian Prime Minister Sanjaa Bayar and Parliament Speaker Danzangin Lundejantsan,[7][9] and signed a Memorandum on Understanding between the Croatian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency and the Mongolian Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment Agency.[10][11]
