J&K woos big ticket Chennai industrialists
CHENNAI: Continuing its efforts to project Jammu and Kashmir as an ideal industrial destination, the Government today connected north with south India by reaching out to top business firms in Chennai here with the promise to provide the right industrial environment for setting up their units.
The event is part of the pre-summit road-shows in the run up to ‘J&K Global Investors’ Summit 2020’, to be held later this year. The Road-Shows have already been held at Bangalore, Kolkata, Mumbai and Hyderabad and these have given a huge impetus to explore investment opportunities in J&K by big ticket and leading business firms of the country.
Advisor to the Lt. Governor, K. K. Sharma led the team of senior officers from J&K administration to Chennai which included Financial Commissioner, Health & Medical Education Department, Atal Dulloo, Principal Secretary to the Lt. Governor, J&K, Mr. Bipul Pathak, besides others.
The road-shows are being organized by Jammu & Kashmir Trade Promotion Organization (JKTPO), in collaboration with media and knowledge partners like PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Ernst & Young, besides national partner, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
In his keynote address, Sharma said, “We are sure that by attracting investment in various potential sectors like tour and travel industry, pharma, horticulture, AYUSH and power, Jammu and Kashmir shall integrate more with the rest of the country,” he said, adding that under the strong leadership of the Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi and Lt. Governor, J&K, GC Murmu, Jammu and Kashmir is moving in the right direction.
Urging the investors to grab ‘first mover’s advantage’, Sharma reflected upon the Government’s efforts to project J&K as a preferred investment destination.
