Bhutan Times - - Home - Ugyen Cho­den

Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay was called on by Ms. Lak­shmi Venkat­acha­lam, Vice Pres­i­dent of the Asian Devel­op­ment Bank (ADB) and her del­e­ga­tion at the Gya­ly­ong Tshogkhang last Thurs­day. Ly­onch­hen con­veyed that he was very happy to re­ceive the Vice Pres­i­dent and said that Bhutan would con­tinue to draw in­spi­ra­tion from ADB’s con­tin­ual ef­forts to­ward pro­mot­ing green and in­clu­sive growth. Ly­onch­hen added that such growth should not only be ADB’s agenda but should also be the global busi­ness paradigm, which can be adopted by all coun­tries in the world. Ly­onch­hen and Ms. Venkat­acha­lam dis­cussed on ex­plor­ing new prospects for mu­tu­ally in­clu­sive growth like so­cially re­spon­si­ble pri­vate sec­tor devel­op­ment, small and medium scale in­dus­tries, re­new­able en­ergy, and agri-mar­ket­ing among oth­ers. The Vice Pres­i­dent as­sured Ly­onch­hen that ADB would con­tinue to as­sist Bhutan in all of her en­deav­ors and pro­vide nec­es­sary sup­port. Ms. Venkat­acha­lam said that she was very priv­i­leged and pleased to be vis­it­ing Bhutan and she feels that Bhutan is in­deed the “Shangrila.” This is her first visit to Bhutan.
