Diplomatic relations between Bhutan and Bangladesh were established on May 12, 1973. In the succeeding years, the two countries’ bilateral relations entered greater heights—characterized by an increased frequency of a myriad of high-level exchanges— which resulted in the establishment of the respective resident missions in Dhaka and Thimphu in 1980.
The Royal Bhutanese Embassy plays a pivotal role in fostering cooperation and understanding between the two countries and in deepening the historic and ever-burgeoning partnership in a meaningful and tangible manner. Besides Bhutan’s bilateral relations with Bangladesh, the Royal Bhutanese Embassy is concurrently accredited to four other countries, namely, Maldives, Pakistan, South Korea and Sri Lanka. The Embassy further coordinates with the Korean International Cooperation Agency(KOICA) Bangladesh Office and Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency(TIKA) Programme Coordination Office, Bangladesh, in facilitating the implementation of bilateral projects.
