The Aus­tralian am­bas­sador to Bhutan Pa­trick Suck­ling paid a farewell call on Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay at the Gya­ly­ong Tshogkhang last Tues­day.

The Prime Min­is­ter con­grat­u­lated Pa­trick Suck­ling for suc­cess­fully com­plet­ing his ten­ure and said that Bhutan has seen a lot more in­ter­ac­tion with Aus­tralia dur­ing his ten­ure. Ly­onch­hen thanked the Am­bas­sador for valu­able de­vel­op­ment as­sis­tance to Bhutan and its sup­port es­pe­cially in the education sec­tor in terms of AusAID schol­ar­ships. Ly­onch­hen con­veyed that th­ese schol­ar­ships are im­por­tant be­cause the Bhutanese, who come back from Aus­tralia af­ter com­plet­ing their stud­ies, bring back a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence, knowl­edge and education val­ues that Aus­tralia stands for. The lead­ers also ex­pressed that both coun­tries could fur­ther co­op­er­a­tion in com­bat­ing cli­mate change and pro­mot­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal con­ser­va­tion.

The Prime Min­is­ter men­tioned that Bhutan would al­ways wel­come Aus­tralia’s gen­er­ous of­fer to en­hance col­lab­o­ra­tion and co­op­er­a­tion in var­i­ous sec­tors of com­mon in­ter­est.
