J&K to host investors meet on Oct 12 in Srinagar

Seeking to woo businesses to Jammu and Kashmir after scrapping of Article 370, the state administration on Tuesday announced a three-day global investors summit to be held in Srinagar from October 12.

The meet will provide J&K an opportunity to showcase its strengths, strategies and potential, the state's Principal Secretary (Industries), Naveen Choudhary, told reporters here.

It will also help allay fears and apprehensions in the minds of trade and business community outside the state, he added.

The Jammu and Kashmir Governor will launch road shows in the country and abroad to attract potential investors.

The official said that road shows are planned in Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Bangalore and Chennai. Such promotional events will also be organised in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, London, the Netherlands, Singapore and Malaysia.

The objective is to sensitise potential investors regarding the opportunities available as well as support and incentives to be provided by the state government, he said.
