Thim[hu, May 01, 2009: Bhutanese media will have some ease now on getting itinerary of the royal entourage or other activities that royal family will be carrying out, thanks to creation of Royal Office for Media. 

The new office formally announced on Thursday will serve as the official media liaison for King and the royal family members.

Called Gyalpoi Dapoen Yigtsang in national language, the office led by Dorji Wangchuk will help better media coverage of the royal events and enhance public relations. 

Media rarely get information where king and royal family members visit. For instance, recent tour of Queen Mother Ashi Sangay Choden did not receive any media coverage. She traveled to Haa and then to Samtse.
