Bhutan Times - - Home - Biku Gu­rung

The Royal Thim­phu Col­lege and Kh­e­sar Gyalpo Univer­sity of Med­i­cal Sciences of Bhutan (KGUMSB) signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing last Tues­day in Thim­phu. The mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing will fo­cus on pro­mo­tion of ed­u­ca­tion and aca­demic ex­changes, di­rect con­tact and re­search co­op­er­a­tion be­tween their fac­ulty mem­bers, de­part­ments, and re­search in­sti­tutes, stu­dent ex­change for in­tern­ships and in other rel­e­vant ar­eas, in­for­ma­tion shar­ing on guest speak­ers and ex­change of fac­ulty mem­bers for lec­tures and shar­ing of fa­cil­i­ties

Speak­ing af­ter the sign­ing, the pres­i­dent of Royal Thim­phu Col­lege Thakur Singh Powdyel said that Bhutan has been a deeply in­ward look­ing and re­flec­tive coun­try and this has ori­en­tated us to evolve our own way of life and world-view. Over time, Royal Thim­phu Col­lege have be­come quite out­ward look­ing and de­rive our own share of ben­e­fits, through in­ter­act­ing with the wider global com­mu­nity in di­verse fields. It is time that we start look­ing in­ward again. This will al­low us to ac­cess where we stand to­day and what we ought to do to re­in­force our own ca­pac­ity and op­por­tu­ni­ties. The sign­ing of the MoU to­day is step in that di­rec­tion.

Lead­ing the del­e­ga­tion from Kh­e­sar Gyalpo Univer­sity of Med­i­cal Sciences of Bhutan (KGUMSB) the presi- dent of the univer­sity Dr .Kin­zang P. Tsh­er­ing ex­pressed his hope that with the sign­ing of this mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing there would be op­por­tu­ni­ties for the two in­sti­tu­tions to col­lab­o­rate in a va­ri­ety of fields in gen­eral. This would also help en­hance our lo­cal ca­pac­ity for the ben­e­fit of the in­sti­tu­tions as well as the coun­try as a whole.
