Bhutan is a tiny and remote kingdom nestling in the Himalayas between its powerful neighbours, India and China.
Bhutan's GDP is expected to grow by 5.7% in 2019 and 6.0% in 2020. Bhutan maintains solid growth and macroeconomic stability.
Bhutan has deposits of numerous minerals. Bhutan's largest export is hydroelectricity.
Bhutan’s hydropower exports comprise 40% of total exports and 25% of the government’s total revenue. Bhutan currently taps only 6.5% of its 24,000-megawatt hydropower potential and is behind schedule in building 12 new hydropower dams with a combined capacity of 10,000 megawatts by 2020.
