External Financing Trends © mof_rgob Total Expenditure
External Financing 1.ODAs highly effective for Bhutan. 2.On average, 39% of total expenditure and 74% of capital expenditures of first three budgets of the 10 th FYP funded by ODAs. 3.India is Bhutan’s largest development partner with 70% on average of total development assistance from FY 2009/10 to FY 2011/12. © mof_rgob
External Financing 4.Major bilateral development partners such as Austria, Denmark, Japan, Netherlands, and Switzerland; and multilateral partners like the UN Agencies, EU, The World Bank, ADB, IFAD, etc … remain key to development. 5.International development partners funded – on average – 12% of total expenditure and 24% of capital expenditure in the first three years of the 10 th FYP. © mof_rgob
External Financing 6.Under current assumptions, capital investment expected to decline significantly in the medium term as ODAs projected to decrease without a clear alternative or substitute avenue for financing; 7.And, given the growing trends in fiscal deficits and a projected resource gap of over Nu. 23 billion in the medium term: © mof_rgob
External Financing 8.Exacerbate Bhutan’s existing external debt profile; 9.Thus, hindering critical development investment and the full achievement of international development goals such as the MDGs and Bhutan’s own Vision 2020 Goals. 10.ODA remains a necessary development input to Bhutan’s aspirations of Gross National Happiness in the foreseeable future. © mof_rgob
