Lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay was called on by a delegation led by Mr. Rajeev Kher, Permanent Secretary to Government of India, Department of Commerce at the Gyalyong Tshogkhang today.

Welcoming the delegation, Lyonchhen expressed that regular exchange of high-level visits and constant interaction between the two countries has always been the hallmark of Bhutan-India relations.

Lyonchhen iterated that Bhutan’s longstanding friendship and cooperation with the Government of India has been archetypal in dispensing useful assistance to Bhutan’s developmental needs since the inception of the first five year plan.

 

Lyonchhen accredited the country’s socio-economic growth particularly in infrastructure development, hydropower production and trade to India’s continued support.

Mr. Kher conveyed that India accorded Bhutan as a distinguished and respectable neighbor and said that friendliness between the two countries transcended beyond boundaries. Mr. Kher said that India could draw many lessons from Bhutan because of its sustainable development framework. Mr. Kher also expressed interests in developing IT services and promoting the tourism industry.

Bhutan conducts its trade with India under the Agreement on Trade, Commerce and Transit signed between the two countries in July 2006.
