PM Modi conferred with Highest Civilian Award by Bhutan
India is the largest trade and development partner of Bhutan and has extended its assistance to several developmental projects in Bhutan. India and Bhutan share a beneficial economic inter-linkage between them and have important bilateral relations.
Bhutan was the first country to receive the COVID-19 vaccines, manufactured by the Serum Institute of India (SII). In January, the country received the first consignment of 1.5 lakh doses of the Covishield vaccine from India as a gift.
The Prime Minister of Bhutan Lotay Tshering tweeted, “Overjoyed to hear His Majesty pronounce Your Excellency Modiji’s @narendramodi name Narendra for the highest civilian decoration, Order of the Druk Gyalpo.
