The RNR Extension Conference resumed after about a decade gap since its convention in 2009. The conference is tagged with the main theme of “Knowing more from the Grass Roots”.

    During the inaugural ceremony of the two-day conference, the Agriculture Minister in his keynote address reiterated that such gatherings were convened to act as an exchange window for creative ideas and success stories from the fields.The Minister also highlighted that the conference is expected to ensure collective and greater success by avoiding individualism and working in isolation. The Honorable minister also stressed that it is in line with the vision of His Majesty the King on decentralisation of resources and funds at the local government level. Accordingly, the Field colleagues and like-wise, the concerned agencies were instigated to gear towards achieving food and nutrition sufficiency as well security towards the end of the 12th FYP as Bhutan will soon be graduating from the list of LDC by 2023, which will also be accompanied by the phasing out of most of the donor funds for our developmental activities.
