United Nations Assistant Secretary General, Haoliang Xu: We gather to celebrate Bhutan’s development successes, consider its challenges, and reflect on our respective roles in supporting the sustainable development of Bhutan. I am struck by his humility and his dedication to people centered-development. I recall one quotation of His Majesty’s that I came across in preparation for today. He said “the world must progress together, or fail together.”
