Asian Development Bank and Bhutan : Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | June 2008
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Bhutan as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Although Bhutan ended its self-imposed isolation in the 1960s, fundamental development activities date back only about 20 years. Nonetheless, it has embarked on a far-reaching development strategy aimed at boosting what it calls Gross National Happiness—a holistic concept combining material well-being with an individual’s spiritual, emotional, and cultural well-being.
