The government of Jammu and Kashmir is trying to make the UT self-sufficient in the mutton production and in this direction they have drafted new schemes for the Sheep Farming projects.
Recently the government signed a Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) for transforming the Sheep Farming Sector in the UT.
The Lt Governor observed that the new partnership between J&K and New Zealand will boost production & productivity in the livestock sector of the UT.
Overarching objective of the MoC is to improve farmers’ remuneration, transfer of technology in research & development as well as marketing & value addition of sheep products of J&K.
New Zealand is an important partner of India’s expanding relationship globally and we attach special values to our ties not only because of deep bonding and cultural affinities but also from a mature understanding of our strategic convergences, global interests and economic potential.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the commencement of bilateral relations between our two countries. It gives us an opportunity to strengthen our partnership and our resolve to construct a strong edifice of a long term, mutual reinforcing economic relationship. Expanding our relationship further, New Zealand G2G, the well known public sector entity actively partnering with other Indian states to leverage expertise and solutions for sustainable development has entered into a cooperation agreement with J&K to encourage collaboration in the field of sheep husbandry, capacity building, technology transfer and training.
