Royal Welcome to the Television Age
The introduction of television and Internet is a reflection
of the level of progress that we have achieved.
I would like to remind our youth that television and Internet
provide a whole range of possibilities, which can be both beneficial
as well as negative for the individual and the society. I trust
that-you will exercise your good sense and judgement in using
the Internet and television. It is my sincere hope that the
introduction of television and Internet in Bhutan will be beneficial
to our people and country.
