Bhutan Times - - Home -

Today marks the 30 years of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween Bhutan and Ja­pan. To cel­e­brate the event Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay met with Am­bas­sador Kenji Hi­ra­matsu at the Gya­ly­ong Tshogkhang last Mon­day. Thank­ing the Am­bas­sador Ly­onch­hen said that al­though Ja­pan is a su­per power she has al­ways been there for Bhutan. Ly­onch­hen said that the Athang Bridge, which will be in­au­gu­rated to­mor­row, is not just a bridge but a gift for the Bhutanese peo­ple from Ja­pan. The Am­bas­sador con­grat­u­lated Ly­onch­hen for be­ing listed in the top 50 World’s Great­est Lead­ers by the For­tune and in­formed Ly­onch­hen that Ja­pan would con­tinue to sup­port Bhutan in its de­vel­op­men­tal ac­tiv­i­ties. He also said that Ja­pan would ex­pand its cor­po­ra­tion with Bhutan in the field of en­vi­ron­ment, san­i­ta­tion, women em­pow­er­ment etc. We want to ex­tend our sup­port in more re­newal en­ergy and make the coun­try greener, H.E Kenji Hi­ra­matsu added.
