BEFIT 2019

Catalysing CSIs to Drive Bhutan’s Economic Diversification

BEFIT 2019 will provide a national forum to review the Cottage, Small & Medium Industry Policy through a renewed lens to identify the interventions needed to catalyze the CSI sector as an important driver of Bhutan’s economic diversification and economic transformation. Outstanding recommendations articulated in the Policy and new insights from BEFIT 2019 will assist authorities to draft a CSI Masterplan that will articulate the medium-term interventions required to set-up a vibrant and resilient eco-system to transform Bhutan’s CSIs into an important agent of economic change.
