“Bhutan Prime Minister Encourages Indian Industries to Invest in Booming Tourism Sector”

Bhutan’s Prime Minister, Tshering Tobgay, extended a warm invitation to Indian industries to explore lucrative opportunities within Bhutan’s thriving tourism sector. Speaking at the ‘India-Bhutan Tourism: Expanding Horizons’ dialogue organized by FICCI in New Delhi, Tobgay emphasized the deep-rooted relationship shared between Bhutan and India, urging Indian investors to capitalize on this bond.

Expressing his eagerness to engage with Indian industry leaders, Tobgay highlighted the unparalleled potential that Bhutan presents in the realm of travel and tourism. With over 72% of the country cloaked in pristine forest cover, Bhutan offers a unique canvas for investors to establish hotels, restaurants, and wellness centers.

One of the key advantages for Indian tourists, Tobgay noted, is the simplicity of travel arrangements. With a nominal permit fee of approximately Rs 1200, Indian travelers can easily access Bhutan, a convenience not extended to tourists from other parts of the world. Anticipating a significant surge in Indian tourist arrivals, Tobgay projected a figure of 1.50 lakh visitors to Bhutan in 2024, doubling the numbers from the previous year.

Tobgay also shed light on the upcoming railway service linking India and Bhutan, which promises to provide a cost-effective mode of transportation between Kokrajhar in Assam and Gelephu in Sarpang, Bhutan. Furthermore, as part of bilateral agreements, both nations are poised to witness an expansion in airline services, facilitating smoother connectivity for travelers.

Reflecting on his visit to India, Tobgay expressed heartfelt sentiments towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi, likening their relationship to that of older brothers. The camaraderie experienced during his time in New Delhi resonated deeply with Tobgay, underscoring the enduring friendship between the two nations.

In conclusion, Bhutan’s Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay’s outreach to Indian industries underscores the mutual benefits of collaboration in the tourism sector. As Bhutan continues to emerge as a coveted destination, Indian investors stand poised to capitalize on this burgeoning market, further cementing the strong ties between Bhutan and India.
