We hope you’ll join us this May 12th to hear from Bhutan’s leadership in the tourism industry and ask your questions!

When Lonely Planet listed Bhutan as the #1 place to visit in 2020, no one could have predicted the global upheaval from international border closures, travel restrictions, and increasing general anxiety around tourism that would soon follow. These days though, as parts of the international community begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel, one question is on everyone’s mind: What’s next?

Join the Executive Director of the Bhutan Foundation in conversation with the Director General of the Tourism Council of Bhutan, Mr. Dorji Dhradhul, in a public talk on the impact of COVID-19 on tourism in Bhutan. Their discussion will cover the past year’s challenges from layoffs and closures, what programs the Tourism Council has implemented to support unemployed youth, to a new optimism following Bhutan’s successful vaccine program.
