The Bhutan Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try (BCCI) signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing yes­ter­day on form­ing a com­mit­tee of 11 dif­fer­ent sec­tors as­so­ci­a­tion for pri­vate sec­tor de­vel­op­ment in the coun­try.

This com­mit­tee will come to­gether and dis­cuss the is­sues faced by the in­di­vid­ual sec­tor and form col­lec­tive rec­om­men­da­tions which can be im­ple­mented for the smooth func­tion­ing of all mem­ber sec­tors. The com­mit­tee will rep­re­sent all the mem­ber sec­tors and ap­proach the gov­ern­ment when­ever gov­ern­ment in­ter­fer­ence is felt nec­es­sary.

BCCI’s Sec­re­tary Gen­eral San­gay Dorji said the is­sues faced by the in­di­vid­ual sec­tor have ei­ther re­mained un­re­solved or re­solved with­out set pro­ce­dures.

“Many things were hap­pen­ing in frag­ment­ing man­ner since these sec­tors func­tion based on their own man­date. The im­pact on pri­vate sec­tor de­vel­op­ment till now has been min­i­mal. Such com­mit­tee was felt nec­es­sary and it’s time for us to unite and work to­gether to re­solve the is­sues faced by each mem­ber sec­tor,” San­gay Dorji said.

De­spite nu­mer­ous is­sues be­ing faced by these mem­bers so far, with­out such a com­mit­tee, most is­sues had been left un­ad­dressed which still ex­ist. The com­mit­tee af­ter the meet­ing on a quar­terly ba­sis will dis­cuss on the var­i­ous is­sues con­fronted by the mem­bers and will de­liver the res­o­lu­tions on the ac­tions to be taken.

The com­mit­tee has also agreed to meet dur­ing needs and emer­gen­cies when a mem­ber sec­tor en­coun­ters press­ing is­sues.

The com­mit­tee will also act as a bridge be­tween the gov­ern­ment and pri­vate sec­tor in in­form­ing the gov­ern­ment poli­cies. Still, it is be­lieved that most of the poli­cies have not reached to the pub­lic and the com­mit­tee aims to reach those poli­cies to them and keep them in­formed.

“The com­mit­tee will also be a guide and ad­vi­sor to the gov­ern­ment on form­ing poli­cies which will help the pri­vate sec­tor and the pub­lic. We are look­ing at ev­ery­thing that we can do to the pri­vate sec­tor,” San­gay Dorji said.
