  5. As a community well wisher I assume Dr.Laxmi Dhakal and group have done tremendous work in the past to streamline BCN. I take the previlage to thank them and congratulate Durga Mainali bhai and team for their fresh mandate to lead BCN.
    I am optimistic that the seniors with their vast experience in community work and the new team with enthusiasm and new ideas shall take the Bhutanese Community in Netherlands to its utmost success.I also extend my sincere suggestion to the new team that they consult the elderly citizens the seniors as much as possible to make communtity decisions.
