Economic Development Policy 2016
The EDP promotes that the economic development process shall take into account environment main-streaming in a phased manner that allows for industries to grow as well as engage in cleaner production.
The success of the country’s environment conservation efforts is one of the main drivers for developing the “Brand Bhutan” theme (highest priority to environmental conservation). Protection of biodiversity, genetic resources and promotion of indigenous knowledge are ones of the main goals.
Bhutan’s commitment to remain carbon neutral contributes to developing the “Brand Bhutan” theme and will be pursued to capitalize on the opportunities arising from the global trends towards low emission development and global best practices.
