Diplomatic relations between India and Bhutan were established in 1968 with the appointment of a resident representative of India in Thimphu. India and Bhutan share traditionally good diplomatic relations which have been sustained by regular visits and high level dialogues between the two nations. India-Bhutan Trade and transit agreement of 1972 established a free trade regime between them. According to this agreement, it provides for duty free transit of Bhutanese export to third countries.
