Bhutan will reopen borders in September with renewed focus on sustainability
BHUTAN, 29.06.22: The Kingdom of Bhutan will be reopening its borders to tourists from 23rd September 2022. But it will do so with a renewed focus on the sustainability of the sector.
The tourism sector will be undergoing a revamp, which will focus on three key areas. They are infrastructure and services, the travel experiences of tourists, and the sector’s environmental impact.
“COVID-19 has allowed us to reset – to rethink how the sector can be best structured and operated, so that it not only benefits Bhutan economically, but socially as well, while keeping carbon footprints low. In the long run, our goal is to create high-value experiences for visitors, and well-paying and professional jobs for our citizens,” said Dr. Tandi Dorji, Foreign Minister of Bhutan and Chairperson of the Tourism Council of Bhutan.
