Bhutan Times - - Home -

Of­fi­cials from the Royal Bhutanese Em­bassy in Dhaka and the Min­istry of Health re­ceived the first con­sign­ment of es­sen­tial medicines weigh­ing 35 met­ric tons from the Gov­ern­ment of Bangladesh at the Buri­mari land port last Thurs­day. The re­main­ing con­sign­ments will be de­liv­ered in the same man­ner in two phases in Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber 2018. Ac­cord­ing to the press re­lease from the Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs a sym­bolic hand­ing-over cer­e­mony of the medicines took place on 23 July 2018 in Dhaka be­tween the Bhutanese Am­bas­sador Sonam T. Rab­gye and the Min­is­ter for Health and Fam­ily Wel­fare Mo­hammed Nasim. A to­tal of 258 types of es­sen­tial medicines will be de­liv­ered to Bhutan by the end of the year, which was kindly com­mit­ted by Sheikh Hasina Prime Min­is­ter of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Bangladesh dur­ing the state visit to Bhutan in April 2017. This project is yet an­other ex­am­ple of the very close ties of friend­ship and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Bangladesh and Bhutan.
