The am­bas­sador Rauli Suikka­nen of Fin­land paid a cour­tesy call on Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay at the Gya­ly­ong Tshogkhang last Fri­day.

The Prime Min­is­ter thanked the Am­bas­sador for Fin­land’s as­sis­tance, in terms of ca­pac­ity build­ing, to the Royal So­ci­ety for the Pro­tec­tion of Na­ture and the Depart­ment of Hy­dro-Met Ser­vice. Ly­onch­hen told the am­bas­sador that Bhutan stood to ben­e­fit and learn from Fin­land’s ex­per­tise in con­struc­tion of tun­nels for roads and es­pe­cially in the hy­dropower sec­tor.

The lead­ers dis­cussed ex­pe­dit­ing en­gage­ment in sec­tors such as energy, ed­u­ca­tion, ICT and en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly min­ing, among oth­ers.

Ly­onch­hen sought Fin­land’s as­sis­tance in Bhutan’s de­vel­op­men­tal needs and con­veyed that RGoB is keen to en­gage with Fin­land, both bi­lat­er­ally and mul­ti­lat­er­ally, in ar­eas of mu­tual in­ter­ests.

Am­bas­sador Suikka­nen thanked Ly­onch­hen for his time and said that he looked for­ward to work­ing closely with Bhutan in the years ahead.
