Bhutan Times - - Home - Staff Re­porter

On the in­vi­ta­tion from the Thai­land In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion Agency, the One Ge­wog One Prod­uct Pro­ject (OGOP) par­tic­i­pated in the Thai OTOP (One Tam­bon One Prod­uct) Fair. The 8 eight days fair started on 17 De­cem­ber 2017 and con­cluded on 25 De­cem­ber 2017. A group of six farm­ers and lo­cal pro­duc­ers par­tic­i­pated in the fair, along with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Min­istry of Agri­cul­ture & Forests, and the Queen’s Pro­ject Of­fice.

Ac­cord­ing to the Bhutanese del­e­ga­tion, Bhutanese prod­ucts like quinoa, kha­rang, honey, mar­malade and cordy­cep prod­ucts were very pop­u­lar. Bhutanese del­e­ga­tion also had sev­eral rounds of dis­cus­sions and meet­ings with many Thai pro­duc­ers, seek­ing feed­back and rec­om­men­da­tions on im­prov­ing OGOP prod­ucts. The fair, which was held at IM­PACT Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre was vis­ited by hun­dreds of vis­i­tors ev­ery day. In ad­di­tion to the Bhutanese OGOP stall, there are more than 100 OTOP stalls.

The One Ge­wog One Prod­uct Pro­ject was in­au­gu­rated in Novem­ber 2015 co­in­cid­ing with the 60th Birth An­niver­sary of His Majesty The Fourth Druk Gyalpo. It is one of the projects un­der the Queen’s Pro­ject Of­fice of Her Majesty The Gyalt­suen.
