Bhutan Go­ing Global

Southasia - - ON RECORD -

This is with ref­er­ence to the ar­ti­cle “Flirt­ing with the dragon” pub­lished in Southasia’s Au­gust 2015 is­sue. No doubt, it is pleas­ing to see that Bhutan is now go­ing global try­ing to make re­newed con­nec­tions with the larger economies of the world. In my opin­ion, the young lead­er­ship in Bhutan has re­al­ized the fact that they can­not af­ford to be iso­lated from the rest of the world and it is nec­es­sary to see be­yond their neigh­bour and old al­lies. I am an ar­dent fan of Bhutan’s Prime Min­is­ter Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay, as he has been re­ally work­ing hard to make a tiny Bhutan stand shoul­der to shoul­der with the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity on equal ground and prin­ci­ples. Com­ing out of the co­coon, Bhutan is grad­u­ally emerg­ing and it must keep up the mo­men­tum to de­rive eco­nomic ben­e­fits from on­go­ing diplo­matic ef­forts.
