L yonchen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay ad­dresses the 20th con­vo­ca­tion of Royal In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment (RIM) on 26 Oc­to­ber in RIM mul­ti­pur­pose hall, Sim­tokha.

Con­vey­ing His Majesty the King’s ‘hearti­est Tashi Delek’ to the grad­u­ates, Ly­onchen in­formed the gath­er­ing that His Majesty the king is tour­ing the coun­try trekking through the high­est moun­tains.

“Walk­ing through the tough­est ter­rains just to be with his peo­ple,” he said, adding grad­u­ates not to up­set about His Majesty not be­ing at the con­vo­ca­tion. “Rather draw in­spi­ra­tion from ex­am­ple of His Majesty the king,” Ly­onchen added.

Ly­onchen shared that when­ever His Majesty vis­its schools, col­leges and In­sti­tu­tions and ad­dress the stu­dents, His Majesty talks and re­peats about na­tional ob­jec­tives.

Speak­ing to the grad­u­ates, Ly­onchen said, the col­lec­tive re­spon­si­bil­ity to look af­ter and pro­tect the in­sti­tu­tion of democ­racy, he said to en­sure the democ­racy is vi­brant, hon­est and to serve the in­ter­est of the peo­ple and coun­try.

The law is ex­tremely im­por­tant to the young democ­racy and it is must to pro­tect the rule of law. “We have to be united as Bhutanese, bound by our love for our sin­gle monarch.” While we cel­e­brate democ­racy, Ly­onchen said, our peo­ple should be gov­ern by the rule of law.

Talk­ing on eco­nomic suc­cess, Ly­onchen said, we must progress at the na­tion eco­nom­i­cally to en­sure sus­tain­able eco- nomic growth. Ly­onchen said that peo­ple get­ting self-re­liant is more im­por­tant than the gov­ern­ment get­ting self-re­liant.

To en­sure the fruits of eco­nomic suc­cess be spread through­out the coun­try, Ly­onchen said, we must work hard and col­lec­tively.

Be­sides, Ly­onchen also talks about the im­por­tance of sovereignty and se­cu­rity among oth­ers. He said the life force of the coun­try sovereignty is the monar­chy. Ly­onchen said, “The demo­cratic con­tin­ues to grow strength to strength and the guardian in­sti­tu­tions of monar­chy guar­an­tee our sovereignty of the na­tion.”

The Bhutanese has the abil­ity to achieve the na­tion ob­jec­tive since many of the con­struc­tions and projects have been work­ing by Bhutanese work­ers. Ly­onchen said that peo­ples are blessed with the ad­van­tages to achieve the goals.

Bhutan is one of the small­est coun­tries in the world, yet the cul­ture di­ver­sity and its riches are the most im­por­tant which is to iden­tity, sep­a­rates and dis­tin­guish among oth­ers.

Bhutanese cul­ture is one of the dis­tinc­tive cul­ture, lan­guage and tra­di­tion in the world. Ly­onchen said, be­cause of our cul­ture we have much bet­ter chance to achieve the na­tional ob­jec­tives. “Na­tional dress is con­trib­uted to pre­serve and pro­mote the cul­ture,” he added.

Ly­onchen re­minds them of the chal­lenges and ad­van­tages of the coun­try’s size and be­ing a small coun­try, he said, we are for­tu­nate to have been mind­ful of the risk of be­ing com­pla­cent, medi­ocre and cor­rupt so­ci­ety.
