Bhutan

Bhutanese journalist Namgay Zam is facing defamation charges over a Facebook post, marking the first time that anyone in the Himalayan country has been taken to court over their social media activities.

 
Bhutan, a Himalayan nation with a population of fewer than a million people, is well on its way to eliminating the scourge of malaria. Investigators from the National Malaria Surveillance System of Bhutan report a dramatic drop in malaria cases, from nearly 40,000 in 1994 to only 45 in 2013.

Bhutan’s gross national happiness philosophy seems to have put the ambitious sub-regional road connectivity plan involving Bangladesh, India and Nepal on a bumpy turf.

 

Afraid of pollution and environmental destruction, the opposition party and members of the Bhutanese public oppose the ratification of the Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and India (BBIN) motor vehicle agreement.
