Prime Minister Narendra Modi has returned home after a successful two day visit to Bhutan. He was seen off by the Bhutanese Prime Minister Dr. Lotay Tshering at the airport this afternoon. Earlier, the King of Bhutan hosted a luncheon in the honour of Indian Prime Minister. 

During the visit, Prime Minister Modi and the Bhutanese leadership resolved to take the bilateral cooperation beyond hydroelectric power sector. The two countries signed various MoUs to diversify the friendship. The sectors include, space, education, science, technology and legal education. 

Prime Minister Modi also addressed the students of Royal Bhutan University in Thimphu this morning. He said that happiness shall always prevail over mindless hate. He said, Bhutan’s message to humanity is happiness which springs from harmony. Mr Modi appreciated that Bhutan has understood the essence of happiness as well as the spirit of harmony, togetherness and compassion.

The Prime Minister said, going beyond the traditional sectors of cooperation, both countries are seeking to cooperate extensively in new frontiers, from schools to space, and digital payments to disaster management. He said that 1.3 billion Indian people are ready to partner with Bhutanese people in their future endeavours, especially in education.
