Shouldering more responsibilities after resettlement, Bhutan News Service (BNS) has officially expanded its network in United States of America.
BNS has formally welcomed 40 representatives from various States within the USA in their team. “We believe that we will grow stronger in the days ahead in regard to news generation,” said Buddha Mani Dhakal, one of the founder executive members of BNS.
According to Dhakal, BNS will be bilingual within these few months. “We are also working hard to disseminate information in Nepali language.” Dhakal further said that the newly welcomed BNS representatives will continue to help their team to gather information from their locality, among other areas.
Dhakal also informed that they are working on bringing some “attractive packages” as appreciation to journalists, writers, and regular contributors at least once in a year.
Established in 2006, BNS has already established its network in Australia, Nepal, Norway, Canada, among others. “In future course of time, we will continue to expand our outreach to all places where exiled Bhutanese dwell,” said Dhakal, adding that BNS is committed to work for public’s right to information.
Meanwhile, BNS has requested interested individuals who wish to work with the news agency, to formally communicate with the board at [email protected] or [email protected]. “Upon receiving such requests, we will study and follow them in detail first before we welcome any “independent” representatives in the team,” added Dhakal.
