Dasho Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay Ly­onch­hen graced the “A decade of DHI’s jour­ney “at a func­tion held yes­ter­day.

Speak­ing at ‘A decade of DHI’s Jour­ney’ this morn­ing, an event which was graced by His Majesty the King, Ly­onch­hen (Dasho) Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay said, “You are ful­fill­ing your re­spon­si­bil­ity in be­ing the real back­bone of our econ­omy. The test of a com­pany and a per­son is to see how a per­son rises back af­ter fall­ing down. DHI fits this ex­am­ple.”

Ly­onch­hen said that DHI has con­tin­ued to work hard not just for its own sur­vival but to en­sure its man­date. He stressed, “You should not and can­not fail.”

Thank­ing the DHI fam­ily for mak­ing him a part of their cel­e­bra­tions, Ly­onch­hen said that what we are to­day is the man­i­fest of what our mon­archs have en­vis­aged and built. “We can talk about education, ac­cess to pri­mary health­care, med­i­ca­tion. These are free and will re­main free be­cause of the ef­forts His Majesty The King has put in,” he added ex­plain­ing on the ef­fi­cient and un­com­pro­mis­ing wel­fare sys­tem the coun­try has.

Ly­onch­hen nar­rated his jour­ney with Druk Green Power Cor­po­ra­tion Lim­ited, a com­pany of DHI. He said that within his scope of his ex­pe­ri­ence, the DGPC has evolved and has been grow­ing. He ex­em­pli­fied on start­ing from ini­ti­at­ing the build­ing of our own tun­nels; to us­ing its re­search and con­sult­ing ser­vice to add to the po­ten­tial of Tala; to part­ner­ing with In­ter­na­tional Com­pa­nies to re­search and pre­pare de­tailed project re­port in other coun­tries; the DGPC has been do­ing a lot.

Sim­i­larly, he men­tioned that the Bank of Bhutan, Bhutan Na­tional Bank, Lo­den Foun­da­tion, all within the realms of DHI has touched lives with their loan schemes and en­trepreneur­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties. He added that the DHI has also shown ex­am­ple to the gov­ern­ment through their Com­pact Sign­ing - which Lyon- chhen said has been in­cor­po­rated in the gov­ern­ment through the Gov­ern­ment Per­for­mance Man­age­ment Sys­tem (GPMS).

To mark the day DHI started Bhutan Fu­ture Fund with a prin­ci­pal trans­fer of Nu.300M; launched a book ti­tled ‘DHI’s Jour­ney: The last 10 years’ and awarded the Long­est Serving em­ploy­ees of the DHI com­pa­nies.

Ly­onch­hen ended by con­grat­u­lat­ing DHI and urg­ing DHI to make all their com­pa­nies GNH cer­ti­fied com­pa­nies with as­sess­ment from the Cen­ter from Bhutan Stud­ies (CBS). This is said would be no bet­ter trib­ute to His Majesty The Fourth King.

Ly­onpo Lekey Dorji, Min­is­ter for Eco­nomic Af­fairs, se­nior gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and em­ploy­ees of DHI were also present for the event.
