Ly­onch­hen ex­tended his grat­i­tude to EU’s use­ful as­sis­tance and sup­port to NGOs in Bhutan, which is ex­pected to en­cour­age sus­tain­able and car­bon­neu­tral tourism in the King­dom.

Ly­onch­hen fur­ther added that EU’s in­creased as­sis­tance in terms of bud­getary sup­port to the lo­cal govern­ment and civil so­ci­ety or­ga­ni­za­tions in the coun­try has proven to be very use­ful.

The am­bas­sador con­veyed that he would work in his best in­ter­ests and con­tinue to build on the ex­ist­ing ex­cel­lent bi­lat­eral re­la­tions be­tween Bhutan and EU.
