Bhutanese Prime Minister Dasho Tshering Tobgay and his wife will pay an official visit to Thailand between June 25 and 28 at the invitation of Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin.

Tobgay: Landmark occasion

The visit will be a first for Mr Tobgay since he became Bhutan's prime minister for the second time in January, and also comes during the 35th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two predominately Buddhist nations.

His visit is aimed at improving partnerships between both nations on a wide front, including trade, investment, tourism, education, clean energy and human resources development, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

The importance of investment prospects in Gelephu Mindfulness City, Bhutan's new economic hub, will also be highlighted during the visit.

Mr Tobgay is scheduled to visit Government House on June 26, where he will join discussions with officials and witness signing ceremonies of partnership agreements between Thai and Bhutanese agencies. He will also have lunch with Mr Srettha.

Mr Tobgay is scheduled to meet with representatives of Thailand's private sector and tourism sector and make a speech at Chulalongkorn University.
