On 27th February, 2021, His Excellency, the Education Minister JB Rai met with the faculty, staff and students of Gyalpozhing College of Information Technology as part of his eastern tour.
During the visits, Lyonpo updated about the vulnerable state of the current education system affected mainly by the pandemic leaving students with inadequate time and space to learn as they did before.

The Education Minister also touched on the significance of the establishment of the college and the role of Information technology in our country. He expressed his vision of providing students with adequate learning tools to develop creativity and a sense of community responsibility that can further improve the education system in our country in the next few years.
Lyonpo also highlighted His Majesty's vision of making our country into a digital nation provided that the students themselves show enthusiasm in taking necessary steps to achieve this goal.
