Listen to Tshering Tobgay, Enlightened Prime Minister of Bhutan at TED
We in Malaysia can learn a thing or two from a landlocked nation like Bhutan about good governance and global citizenship. We have a corrupt leadership and a mismanaged economy, whereas Bhutan has a democracy which was imposed upon its people by its revered King and a government which cares for its citizens, manages its affairs in an exemplary manner, and protects the environment. Pristine Bhutan is not just a carbon neutral nation; it is a carbon negative one.
Let us protect our environment, fight climate change and, as the Prime Minister of Bhutan, H.E. Tshering Tobgay said, let us do it together.–Din Merican
