MULTI SECTOR STAKEHOLDER CONSULTATION ON UPDATE OF THE NATIONAL TRANSPORT POLICY
The Ministry of Information and Communications (MoIC) and UNDP Bhutan held a multi-stakeholder consultation to update the National Transport Policy.
According to Bhimlal Suberi from the ministry, the current national transport policy was drafted in 2006. The present Transport Policy (2006) does not fully address emerging issues, fails to address the institutional structure, planning and coordination and also does not cover the entire transportation sector. Therefore the Ministry feels it is timely to update the National Transport sector which is inclusive and sustainable in nature.
