5th February 2018


Dear friends,
and all Bhutanese in Perth.

We hope you are having a good time,

For your kind information, as per decision 1.2.1 of the 1st Meeting of the Executive Committee Members (ECM) for the Year 2018, the new ECM has officially assumed the responsibility as ABPI ECM through handing-taking on 4th February 2018. The new ECM also held its 1st ECM Meeting on the same day.

Several discussions were made during the meeting. However, we would like to submit 2 key milestones, which deserve immediate attention for now:


The ABPI through the His Majesty’s Secretariat has been graciously recognized for its contribution and selfless dedication to the Bhutanese in Perth. In this regard, the His Majesty’s Secretariat has advised that the upcoming Birth Anniversary of The Fifth Druk Gyalpo shall be celebrated with the presence of film actors from Bhutan. The Bhutan Embassy Office in Thailand has conveyed this message today on behalf of the His Majesty’s Secretariat.

As soon as we receive the programme details from the HM’s Secretariat, we shall share the details for your kind information. Venue, time and programme itinerary from our end shall also be made ready in due course of time.

This is a historic event for all Bhutanese in Perth and also a perfect opportunity to showcase our unity. A request is, therefore, being made for all Bhutanese (members and potential members to ABPI) to participate in this important event.


We have been advised that through the prayers from Dorji Lopen Rinpochhe, HE Jamgoen Rinpochhe will be on Australia tour this 23rd February 2018. HE will start at Perth. A programme itinerary pertaining to his visit will be shared tomorrow along with HE’s profile.
