Bhutan generates USD 16 M as SDF

The country generated about USD 16 M as sustainable development fees since the reopening of the country for tourism in September of last year. The finance minister revealed the latest figures at the National Assembly today. The minister said this is a milestone achievement in a short span of time and the revenue will significantly help in improving the foreign exchange reserve position.

Over the past eight months, Bhutan received more than 52,000 tourists. From over 52,000 tourists, more than 32,500 are Indian tourists who paid Nu 1,200 per night. Similarly, from over 19,000 international tourists, a little over half of them entered the country under the new SDF.
