Bhutan and ADB

In the Spotlight

The Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked country that banks on the generation of hydropower to boost its economy. Hydropower contributes about a fifth of the gross domestic product.

Bhutan has achieved exceptional economic growth over the past 3 decades. Significant achievements in social development have also been made in recent years, with the number of poor approximately halved between 2007 and 2012. However, the challenge remains for Bhutan to expand its economic base and make its growth more inclusive, especially for unemployed youth and women.

The strategic objectives of ADB's country partnership strategy乐动体育注册 for Bhutan are to foster economic diversification and reduce spatial and social disparities.

Bhutan is a member of the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) program.
