Welcome message from H.E. Dr. Tandi Dorji, Minister for Foreign Affairs


On behalf of the Royal Government of Bhutan, I am pleased to extend a very warm welcome to all our friends and partners to the 15th Round Table Meeting (15th RTM) that will take place on 2nd  September 2021.

The RTM is the highest forum for policy dialogue between Bhutan and its development partners and the Royal Government accords highest importance to this event. The 15th RTM will be an opportunity for us to share update on our 12th Five Year Plan.

The socio-economic progress that Bhutan has achieved today would not have been possible without the generous support and assistance of our development partners. Therefore, the 15th RTM will also be an opportunity for us to express our gratitude and appreciation to our development partners for the support and assistance rendered to us over the decades. We are confident that our partners will extend their full support in ensuring a successful RTM.


( Dr. Tandi Dorji )
