The Hon’ble Minister, Yeshey Dorji, Ministry for Agriculture and Forests & Vice Chair of the National Environment Commission, Royal Government of Bhutan signed the agreement on Asian Forestry Cooperation Organisation (AFoCO) on 13 September 2016 in Seoul, Republic of Korea (ROK).
The AFoCO Agreement was adopted in September 2015 and is housed at the ASEAN ROK Forest Cooperation Secretariat, Seoul.

The ROK has taken a daunting step to promote and endorse a sustainable development in the Asian region through AFoCO.
