If we can enhance the export potential it will not only result in economic growth but will also bring the graph of unemployment down.

Recently Union Minister of Industries and Commerce along with LG Manoj Sinha talked about how they are going to change the socio economic canvas of Jammu and Kashmir by promoting exports from every district.

Stressing that the dream of economic growth, aspirations of youth can be fulfilled only in conditions of peace, the Lt Governor said, in pursuit of development objectives, society must play a vital supportive role to foil the efforts of adversaries and isolate anti-social elements.

He observed that the administration is not only aiming to take J&K export from Rs. 1845 Crore to Rs.5000 Crore, but it is also resolute to build a better future for our youth and a society free of inequality and unemployment. ‘We therefore, seek to make every citizen an equal partner in the development journey’, the Lt Governor further said.

He congratulated the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, DGFT, JKTPO and exporters of J&K, farmers, handicraft artists, Khadi Village Industries, entrepreneurs associated with the Self Help Groups and all the stakeholders on the unveiling of District Export Plans.

He said that the historic step is in line with the vision of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi who in 2019 gave a clarion call for recognizing the uniqueness and diversity of all 773 districts of the country, and exploiting them properly so that each district can develop itself into an export hub and establish its identity in the global market.
