- Bhutan entry heralds study into country’s unique Gross National Happiness
An international team of MTI Consultants are in the capital Thimphu and have launched their first project in Bhutan.
They have also appointed a local Bhutanese associate who will facilitate market development and project management. Earlier this week the MTI delegation had exploratory meetings with the CEOs of the Bank of Bhutan (BOB), the Bhutan Stock Exchange and leading local newspaper group Kuensel, with a further road show planned this week.
“We are also using this opportunity to study the concept of Gross National Happiness, how Bhutan has effectively integrated this into governance and culture. We had enlightening exchange session with the Centre for Bhutan Studies, the country’s leading research agency cum think tank, whilst sharing MTI’s thought leadership on strategy, with both parties agreeing to explore collaborations,” said MTI CEO Hilmy Cader.
“Recently, The State Trading Corporation of Bhutan Limited (STCBL) selected MTI Consulting to help restructure the organisation via an assignment on Organisational Development. STCBL is one of the largest State-owned enterprises in Bhutan and we are looking forward to collaborating with MTI Consulting to deliver this project,” said MTI’s Bhutan-based Associate Ugyen Lham and MTI Consulting Global CEO Hilmy Cader.
MTI Consulting is Sri Lanka’s leading Strategy Consultancy, having worked on projects in over 40 countries, including frontier markets such as Algeria Bangladesh, Cambodia, Egypt, Jordon, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Maldives, Mexico, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines and Syria.
