OGOP Exhibition in Thailand
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.
