“Whenever an opportunity in the public-private partnership comes up, we go by the value that is involved in the project and its socio-economic factors are also taken into consideration not just the commercial.”

  1. Is Thimphu only the option for education city? I feel it will be nice if education city is divided into more than two campus and divided among different region within the country.

    Education city should be in gelephu. Thimphu is crowding out rest of the dzongkhags for development opportunity. Bhutan is not just Thimphu.
    Look at South Korea on how they develop their regions in inclusive manner.

  3. yeshi

    yes,
    The above one said is very correct.. why is it so necessary for the development being taken place in a place where the developments are already up to phase.. This is what about our government is being inefficient si…. there are many places in Bhutan for these activities to be brought up..
