Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Bhutan, Lee Jang-keun handed over four electric cars (Hyundai Kona) to Foreign Secretary Pema Choden in Thimphu yesterday. 

The cars are provided by the Government of the Republic of Korea under its Small Grant Aid for the year 2021. Since 2016, the ministry has received 22 cars from the Government of the Republic of Korea, including the current four Hyundai Kona electric cars. 

Foreign Secretary Pema Choden said that the four electric cars will contribute to the government’s efforts to promote a low carbon transport system which is one of the identified actions for low emission development to support Bhutan’s effort to remain carbon neutral in our first nationally determined contributions under the Paris Agreement.
