Bhutan has been a source of inspiration for Nations around the world for Gross National Happiness, a new development paradigm. For Bhutanese, GNH has been a way of life manifested in our values as an individual, within family, at workplace, in the society and beyond. The construction sector plays a part in promoting GNH through the infrastructure development activities.
