Today on 25th May 2020, during the handing taking ceremony, on behalf of H.E Mr.Hu Kang-II, the Korean Ambassador to Bhutan in Dhaka, Ms. Eunkyoung Koh, the Program Coordinator, KOICA Bhutan World Friends Program Office in Thimphu handed over test kits which can conduct 17250 tests and additional USD 200,000 for COVID -19 response to the Honorable Health Minister, Lynpo Dechen Wangmo.
In view of the above, the Ministry of Health, on behalf of the government and people of Bhutan, would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Republic of Korea for your kind support in these troubling times. Your gesture not only exemplifies the definition of international community’s solidarity and corporation, but also solidifies the diplomatic relation between the two countries. The support would immensely benefit Bhutan in its effort to combat COVID-19 especially through early detection, isolation and timely treatment. We look forward to collaborate in many similar areas in the future and take forward the Korea and Bhutan friendship to greater heights.
