World Bank*

Bhutan represents a bastion of peace and stability in South Asia. Today Bhutan faces a new set of challenges as it experiences rapid transition from a mostly agrarian society to one characterized by increasing levels of education, shifting expectations and changing demographics, particularly among the country's youth for whom rural life and farming hold little appeal. The FY11-14 country partnership strategy (CPS) seeks to assist Bhutan in addressing a period of major transition for the country. It focuses on economic growth, employment generation and skills development, while supporting the expansion and sustainability of quality public services. This joint Bank-IFC CPS will ensure maximum complimentarily and collaboration between both agencies for providing a consolidated package of inputs by way of both financing and knowledge sharing. The CPS will align with the country's Tenth Five-Year Plan (FY08-13) in support of Bhutan's efforts to: (a) diversify the economy and generate employment through private sector growth, and (b) provide services to populations in rural and expanding urban areas that lack them while addressing emerging social challenges. The implementation of the CPS may be affected by endogenous factors including, macroeconomic volatility and capacity limitations; or risks related to the program's design

European Commission*

The main focus of the EU-Bhutan Strategy Paper 2007-2013, is the renewable natural resources sector. Good governance/democratisation and trade facilitation are also being supported. This will help strengthen Bhutan’s development policy and programmes for reducing rural poverty by creating income-generating activities at the rural level and improving farm-to-market access. Funding of €8 million has been allocated through the multi-annual indicative programme for the period 2007-2010 to support renewable natural resources and good governance. A further €2 million is expected for the following three years (2011-2013) for trade-related assistance.
