The Bhutanese economy has consistently performed well over the last few decades. Its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew, on average, by about 8% between 2001 and 2010, which was the highest among South Asian economies. While growth is estimated to have moderated slightly to 8.3% in FY2011 from 9.3% in FY2010, it is forecast at 7.9% for FY2012 and 8.4% for FY2013 largely on the account of continued hydropower construction. In response to the high and sustained growth, Bhutan has also been successful in reducing poverty. Based on the national poverty line, the incidence of poverty declined from about 32% to about 23% between 2003 and 2007.
