Ly­onch­hen at the First Global Hap­pi­ness Di­a­logue in Dubai

Bhutan Times - - Home -

S peak­ing at the First Global Hap­pi­ness Di­a­logue in Dubai, UAE, Ly­onch­hen re­minded the par­tic­i­pants of the so­cial dis­rup­tions, po­lit­i­cal in­sta­bil­i­ties and af­fects of cli­mate change that the world faced in the year 2016. He said that “af­ter a dif­fi­cult 2016, it is a good idea to kick off 2017 by talk­ing about hap­pi­ness in gen­eral, and the role of govern­ment in cre­at­ing hap­pi­ness in par­tic­u­lar.” Ly­onch­hen said that it is im­por­tant for the Gov­ern­ments to take hap­pi­ness se­ri­ously by mak­ing it a pub­lic good rather than rel­e­gat­ing it as an in­di­vid­ual pur­suit.

Shar­ing the Bhutanese ex­pe­ri­ences of Gross Na­tional Hap­pi­ness, Ly­onch­hen at­trib­uted the suc­cesses to the lead­er­ship of our Mon­archs. Ly­onch­hen con­cluded his state­ment with the prayer “May the sun of peace and hap­pi­ness, shine over all peo­ple, all over the world, for all time.”

Ly­onch­hen ar­rived in Dubai, UAE on Fri­day at the in­vi­ta­tion of Her Ex­cel­lency Ohood Bint Khal­fan Al Roumi, UAE’s Min­is­ter of State for Hap­pi­ness and Vice Chair of the World Govern­ment Sum­mit.
