Bhuan's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth projection for 2020 has been revised downward to negative 2.1 after the country went into its first-ever lockdown in August.

Finance Minister Namgay Tshering clarified that the negative growth of 6.7 percent reported earlier in the media was the projection for the worst-case scenario, which he said would not come.

He said that the worst-case scenario would come only if the country goes into several phases of lockdowns in the future.
