On the invitation from the Thailand International Cooperation Agency, the One Gewog One Product Project (OGOP) participated in the Thai OTOP (One Tambon One Product) Fair at the IMPACT Exhibition Centre from December 17 – 25.
A group of six farmers and local producers participated in the fair, along with representatives from the agriculture ministry and the Queen’s Project Office.
According to the Bhutanese delegation, Bhutanese products like quinoa, kharang, honey, marmalade and cordycep products were popular. They also had several rounds of discussions and meetings with Thai producers, seeking feedback and recommendations on improving OGOP products. The OGOP Project was inaugurated in November 2015 coinciding with the 60th Birth Anniversary of His Majesty The Fourth Druk Gyalpo. It is one of the projects under the Queen’s Project Office of Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen.
