Post-Article 370 repeal, the Union government has orchestrated an environment conducive to industry growth. Initiatives like the Jammu and Kashmir Global Investors' Summit and a surge in private investments to Rs 38,000 crore have invigorated the region.

Four years post the abrogation of Article 370, Jammu and Kashmir is basking in a new era of progress. The Union Territory has witnessed comprehensive development, a transcending economy, and infrastructure to elevate its residents’ overall quality of life.

Lt. Gov. Manoj Sinha highlights 54% growth in MSME exports and a 173% rise in importer-exporter registrations in FY 2021-22. Sinha attributed this success to a strategic focus on food processing, handicrafts, and organic products, stimulating economic expansion.

In Jammu and Kashmir, there is remarkable success across business, economy, education, culture, and sports. The region has managed to attract investments worth Rs 2,200 crore, creating 10,000 jobs annually. A remarkable 5,327 investment proposals amounting to Rs 66,000 crore underscore a transformative economic resurgence.

The New Industrial Policy’s extensive outlay of Rs 28,400 crore, spanning 15 years, is set to trigger investments of Rs 20,000 crore and create 450,000 jobs. The G-20 summit spotlighted Jammu and Kashmir‘s potential beyond its troubled history, shifting perceptions and attracting foreign investments.

Post-Article 370 repeal, the Union government has orchestrated an environment conducive to industry growth.
