Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay met with P. K. Sinha, Power Secretary and delegation from India at the Gyalyong Tshogkhang on Tuesday.
Sinha's delegation is in the country to sign an inter-governmental agreement on development of four joint-venture hydroelectric projects between India and Bhutan.
Prime Minister thanked Sinha for all his support on the project, and the two discussed the hydroelectric projects and the possibility of advancing other joint ventures and exploring into other Memorandum of understandings.
Sinha said that if the other joint ventures were to be started on a concurrent basis, it would allow for a more efficient and less time consuming method.
The Prime Minister expressed his gratitude to Sinha for his advice on the matter as well as for the extraordinary gesture of goodwill that India has given to Bhutan particularly for their help addressing rupee deficit.
Prime Minister said that hydroelectricity is important to Bhutan and to Bhutan’s relationship with India.
