His Excellency PM Tshering Tobgay launched ‘Resource Inventory and Business Opportunities for Cottage and Small Industries (CSI) under Production and Manufacturing Sectors’ on February 24th, 2017 celebrating the 37th Birth Anniversary of His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and the First Birth Anniversary of HRH the Gyalsey.

Note: Similar studies have been conducted by BCCI and MoEA. The KPMG report on Inventory of Resources was published in 2005. “One Dzongkhag, Three Products” report was completed by BCCI in 2013. What is different with this study is that it highlights opportunities and existing resources at the Cottage and Small Industry level with special emphasis on the production and manufacturing sector for all the gewogs under the 20 dzongkhags. The report spells out the opportunities identified through ‘key informant interviews’, ‘expert interviews’ and ‘focus group discussions’. Further, in-depth desk information and reports were reviewed for validation and value addition. This report is an effort of BOiC and GCBS to support and lead entrepreneurs to pursue business development and innovation through this study.
