Hiramatsu, who is Japan’s envoy to India and concurrently to Bhutan, told the newspaper in an interview that it was his first visit to Thimpu since the new DNT government assumed office last month. He wanted to convey to the Prime Minister Lotay Tshering and others in the government that Japan “remains committed to supporting Bhutan’s development efforts as we did in the past.”
 
Japan would like to enhance efforts to support Bhutan’s 12th Plan and diversify cooperation in areas such as infrastructure development, health care assistance, and environmental preservation, the envoy said.
