Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay met Kenji Hi­ra­matsu, the new Am­bas­sador of Ja­pan to Bhutan at the Gya­ly­ong Tshogkhang last Thurs­day.

Ex­tend­ing a warm wel­come, Ly­onch­hen of­fered his hearty con­grat­u­la­tions to the am­bas­sador for pre­sent­ing his cre­den­tials to His Majesty the King and as­sum­ing this very im­por­tant post.

Am­bas­sador Hi­ra­matsu con­veyed that Bhutan-Ja­pan re­la­tion­ship has strength­ened and bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion has wit- nessed in­creas­ing de­vel­op­ments over time. The Ja­panese am­bas­sador said he has high hopes of en­gag­ing more ac­tively with RGoB in ar­eas such as health­care, education, en­vi­ron­men­tal con­ser­va­tion, cul­tural preser­va­tion, em­pow­er­ing women and child de­vel­op­ment.

On be­half of RGoB and the peo­ple of Bhutan, Ly­onch­hen ex­pressed his deep grat­i­tude to Ja­pan ac­cen­tu­at­ing on how Ja­panese as­sis­tance has per­me­ated through all sec­tors of de­vel­op­ment in Bhutan, most promi­nently in the agri­cul­tural sec­tor.

The Prime Min­is­ter added that ex­changes of high-level vis­its and peo­ple-to-peo­ple in­ter­ac­tions have fur­ther ce­mented the ex­cel­lent cor­dial ties shared by the two coun­tries.

Bhutan and Ja­pan will cel­e­brate 30 years of friend­ship this year.
