He will be accompanied by the Foreign Minister, Economic Affairs Minister and senior officials of the Royal Government of Bhutan.

The Prime Minister of Bhutan and his delegation will visit Ahmedabad to participate in the Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2015, where he will meet with Prime Minister Modi.

He will also call on President Pranab Mukherjee and meet several cabinet ministers in New Delhi.

Prime Minister Tobgay will also visit Varanasi and Bodh Gaya.

The visit will impart further content and momentum to the close partnership between India and Bhutan.

Diplomatic relations between India and Bhutan were established in 1968 with the appointment of a resident representative of India in Thimphu.

The updated India-Bhutan friendship treaty not only reflects the contemporary nature of the relationship but also lays the foundation for their future development in the 21st century.

Amongst others, the treaty provides for perpetual peace and friendship, free trade and commerce, and equal justice to each other's citizens.

The traditionally unique bilateral relations, characterized by trust and understanding have matured over the years.
