Bhutan - Income



The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) reports that in 2001 Bhutan's gross domestic product (GDP) was estimated at $2.5 billion. The per capita GDP was estimated at $1,200. The annual growth rate of GDP was estimated at 6%. The average inflation rate in 2000 was 7%. The CIA defines GDP as the value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year and computed on the basis of purchasing power parity (PPP) rather than value as measured on the basis of the rate of exchange. It was estimated that agriculture accounted for 45% of GDP, industry 20%, and services 35%. Aid receipts amounted to about $71 per capita and accounted for approximately 11% of the gross national income (GNI).
