Strengthen partnership between ROK and Bhutan for Local development

Bhutan is the first country in the world to declare Gross National Happiness into national planning. It is one of countries environmentally friendly as well as developing itself toward a sustainable way. Even though national capacity of economic development is not enough to catch up developing countries, the importance of national priority ‘Happiness’ has never been diminished in the process of national planning for the country. Sustainable development goals are derived from the idea of quality of life for all human beings. Therefore, Bhutan’s GNH seems to be reviewed worldwide. The terms of ‘Poor but Happy’ has been stimulating all the developing countries so it is relevant for Korean to monitor the development process compared to the Korea’s experiences of rapid economic social development and exchange knowledge and experience between Korea and Bhutan.
