Invest in public transport

Bhutan has taken a commendable step in conserving foreign currency reserves and reducing trade deficit by implementing a vehicle import moratorium. While this initiative has yielded positive results in reducing vehicle imports, the increase in imports from other countries underscores the need for Bhutan to invest heavily in efficient public transport systems. By examining successful examples from countries with exemplary public transport networks, it becomes evident that Bhutan must prioritise such investments to achieve sustainable development.
