Bhutan Times - - Home -

Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay was called on by H.E. Mr. Freddy Svane, Am­bas­sador of Den­mark to Bhutan last Fri­day at the Gye­ly­ong Tshogkhang. The am­bas­sador in­formed Ly­onch­hen about the 40th An­niver­sary Cel­e­bra­tion of Bhutan – Den­mark Friend­ship As­so­ci­a­tion that took place cou­ple of weeks ago and how well the cel­e­bra­tion was re­ceived in Den­mark. He said that it is im­por­tant to have peo­ple to peo­ple bond. To this Ly­onch­hen said that he would do his part to con­tinue the friend­ship be­tween Bhutan and Den­mark. While Bhutan is the re­cip­i­ent of the high­est per capita amount from Den­mark, at one point Den­mark pro­vided the sec­ond largest as­sis­tance (In­dia be­ing the first) to Bhutan. Ly­onch­hen said that he is deeply grate­ful to the gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Den­mark for their sup­port and friend­ship. Ly­onch­hen and the Am­bas­sador both agreed that Den­mark’s as­sis­tance in Bhutan has been a huge suc­cess. While the tran­si­tion is be­ing man­aged well, af­ter the ‘tran­si­tion pe­riod’ the two coun­tries will con­tinue to work to­gether within the frame­work of part­ner­ship in wide range of de­vel­op­men­tal ac­tiv­i­ties. Am­bas­sador com­ple­mented Ly­onch­hen and said that Bhutan’s democ­racy is a ‘Role Model’ to some coun­tries around the world. To this Ly­onch­hen said that Bhutan is for­tu­nate to have good neigh­bor, good de­vel­op­men­tal part­ners and most im­por­tantly an en­light­ened monarch.
