Since 5th August 2019, the Union Territory (UT) of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) has went through sea changes with the new government coming into picture, explained Ranjan Prakash Thakur, Principal Secretary, Industry & Commerce, J&K during the inauguration of the J&K Week at the India Pavilion in EXPO2020 Dubai.

To quote Thakur, “This is the dawn of a new era which presents an opportunity to showcase the changes going on in the Union Territory”, he added.

Thakur along with Dr. Aman Puri, Consul General of India in Dubai and Deputy Commissioner-General for India at Expo 2020 Dubai inaugurated the J&K Pavilion. To quote Thakur, “We need to develop J&K into a modern, developed UT which is riding on the top of the heritage and hundreds of thousands of years of artwork and handicrafts.”

While exchanging words about the target sectors, he said, “Among the target sectors, tourism is one of the most crucial sectors we are aiming for growth. Kashmir valley will be a key destination for the development of Hotels, Hospitals, Handloom and Horticulture while Jammu will be focusing on growing sectors such as Production, Pharma, Inland Container Depot and Real Estate.”
