Prime Min­is­ter, Dasho Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay, said to the grad­u­ates that “In or­der to nur­ture what we en­joy to­day, we must serve His Majesty The King,”

Ly­onch­hen added that as it is granted by our Con­sti­tu­tion “We go to school with the un­der­stand­ing that ed­u­ca­tion is free of cost. And it is free.”

Our par­ents take chil­dren to hos­pi­tal ex­pect­ing all vac­ci­na­tions are pro­vided. It is pro­vided and pro­vided free. Our Monar­chs founded the Con­sti­tu­tion so that this wel­fare cul­ture is con­tin- ued and fu­ture gen­er­a­tion of fam­i­lies can also en­joy the ben­e­fits that we en­joy to­day,” Ly­onch­hen added.

Ly­onch­hen said that for a stu­dents grad­u­at­ing from the col­lege, it’s a mile­stone and en­ter­ing in to the new chap­ter but for a RIM grad­u­ates, it’s a new chap­ter in Bhutan who rep­re­sents our beloved King.

Ly­onch­hen also urged the grad­u­ates to “en­sure that democ­racy take firm root, en­sure that the rule of law con­tinue to pre­vail and en­sure that there is no room for cor­rup­tion.”

Con­grat­u­lat­ing the grad­u­ates, Ly­onch­hen said that he look for­ward to the grad­u­ates serv­ing His Majesty The King and the Coun­try.

Ly­onch­hen thanked the Aus­tralian govern­ment for sup­port­ing the mas­ter’s level pro­gram at the RIM.

Com­mend­ing the RIM for train­ing many pro­fes­sion­als in the field of fi­nance, man­age­ment, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy and oth­ers, Ly­onch­hen said that the in­sti­tute has made huge con­tri­bu­tions to­wards the de­vel­op­ment of Bhutan.

“I can see the con­fi­dence that RIM es­tab­lished since 1986, each and every grad­u­ates are con­tribut­ing to the na- tion build­ing.”

Jenny Grant-Curnow, Coun­sel­lor, Aus­tralian High Com­mis­sion, New Delhi said that in­vest­ing in hu­man is eco­nom­i­cally and fi­nan­cially sound. She also said that Aus­tralian and Bhutan share com­mon un­der­stand­ing in terms of qual­ity of ed­u­ca­tion.

Ly­onpo Ngeema San­gay Tshempo, the Chair­per­son of RIM Board said to the grad­u­ates that the knowl­edge and the skills that they had ac­quired dur­ing the train­ing should not be left aside. “It has to make best use of it.”

Mean­while, RIM is of­fer­ing di­ploma cour­ses to mas­ter de­gree in var­i­ous fields. How­ever, since 2016, the in­take for di­ploma cour­ses has been sus­pended and will be sus­pended un­til there is de­mand for di­ploma grad­u­ates in the mar­kets. Ly­onch­hen said that the RIM had ful­filled its man­dates to train di­ploma grad­u­ates.
