About the Project
The GPP project aims to provide a cross-cutting industrial strategy to support Gross National Happiness and ‘The Middle Path’, which together form the core of Bhutanese development priorities.
The project aims to implement GPP practices in Bhutan, enabling the procurement cycle to be used as a driver for green growth. It seeks to:
- increase the positive environmental, social and economic multipliers of public consumption
- provide an incentive for sustainable production among suppliers, particularly SMEs
- and build demand-side and supply-side capacity to write and respond to GPP tenders.
- Main Activities
- Develop policy recommendations on GPP in Bhutan;
- Develop dedicated GPP guidance material for public procurers;
- Design preferential programmes for SMEs and disadvantaged suppliers;
- Design and facilitate GPP training sessions for public procurers and suppliers;
- Mentor real-time GPP pilot tenders in selected industrial sectors; and
- Provide for long-term GPP implementation by establishing a GPP knowledge platform and curricula.

Bhutan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI)
It was again under the Royal Command that the BCCI was reinvigorated in May 1988 as a potential partner for nation building, following a Royal Audience granted to the representatives of the business community by His Majesty the Fourth King.
To achieve its cherished mission, the BCCI has on its agenda, a broad range of function services. Some of these services include representation both in the national and international forums, networking & linkages, business information services, training & other skill develop programs, membership development, business referral services and sustainable enter development services. The BCCI provides linkage between the government and the privates and works closely with all the government agencies, autonomous organizations and international organizations and donor agencies towards facilitation and promotion of trade & industrial development in the kingdom.
Towards this front, strengthening of the institutional capacity to become a better partner for the royal government for shaping enabling environment for the development of the Bhutanese private sector has been the key approach of the BCCI to respond to the ever-increasing expectations of its members and stakeholders.
The BCCI, as a development facilitator, has always endeavored towards working not in confrontation but in close collaboration with different agencies.
Royal Institute of Management
As the only Government management Institute, RIM has been solely engaged in supporting the human resource development need of the country, especially for the civil service. RIM’s intervention in the national human resource capacity building was primarily through training, research and consultancy activities.
