Bhutan will be supplying 40 metric tonnes of liquid Oxygen to Assam.
The Oxygen will be exported using cryogenic tankers. The Oxygen will come from a new plant from Motanga Industrial Estate in Eastern Bhutan’s Samdrup Jongkhar district.
A release from the Indian mission in Bhutan said, “The provision of oxygen by Bhutan will augment India’s efforts to win the fight against COVID-19 and save precious lives” and “this is a practical manifestation of the uniquely close and friendly ties between India and Bhutan.”
