P rime Minister of Bhutan has been named amongst the world 50 great leaders by the Fortune Magazine a well known for publishing the annual Fortune 500 list of the world’s richest companies and a sister concern of Time Magazine . As per the Fortune magazine these 50 personalities in business, government, philanthropy and the arts and all over the globe, these men and women are transforming the world and inspiring others to do the same.

The second on the list is German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has dominated Europe’s politics for a decade now. She is the only Continental leader whose term in office predates the 2008 financial crisis, a winner of three general elections who has also seen off countless intra-party rivals. She was also named as the Time person of the year 2015 and considers her as the de facto leader of the continent.
Quoting the reason for the selection of Lyonpchhen Tshering Tobgay for coming at number 50 the magazine says that Lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay is only the second Prime Minister to Bhutan since it held its first democratic election in 2008.
It says, “He still uses the old Monarchy’s Gross National Happiness Index, compiled through surveys of citizens, to measure the country’s progress, but he has also turned to more concrete goals, like harnessing the economic potential of the Himalayan nation’s hydropower.”
Highlighting Bhutan’s environmental track record it says, “He’s sustaining the country’s environmental commitment: Bhutan has maintained its unique status as a carbon-negative country, serving as a “sink” for about 4 million tons of CO2 a year.” The recent international TED conference which became popular on social media and the Charlie Rose show interview in USA.
This has been combined with his clean image and a penchant to market Bhutan well to the international community and built the image of the country better.

As retaliated by the Prime Minster we must work together to fight climate change and protect our planet and everybody have their own responsibility. We must work together as it is our planet and we must save it.
