J&K hosts 4 Cr tourists in 2 yrs; Surge in foreign tourists: LG Sinha


Says J&K getting cheapest power compared to rest of India; red tape replaced with red carpet for investors, situation perfect for investments in J&K, Sgr Airport to see flight shortly; Apollo to set up Hospital in

Jammu Tawi, Dec 21: Jammu and 's Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Thursday said that the UT hosted four crore tourists in the past two years while as the foreign tourist arrivals recorded a 350 per cent surge after successful G-20 meeting.

Speaking at the Food Processing and Wellness Conclave at Jammu, the LG said that in the last two years, four crore tourists visited J&K. “Foreign tourist arrivals saw 350 per cent surge post successful G-20 summit that was held in May 2023 in Srinagar,” the LG said.

He said apart from Sonmarg, Pahalgam and Gulmarg, J&K has a vast potential as 50 additional offbeat destinations have been explored each at Kashmir and Jammu regions for tourists including foreign guests. “Recently, Lolab was chosen as the best offbeat destinations of India,” the LG said.

Welcoming the industry leaders, policymakers and stakeholders from hospitality, wellness & food processing sectors, the LG urged them to explore investment opportunities and foster collaboration during the two-day conclave, organized by J&K Trade Promotion Ogranization.

“A hospital by Apollo will boost the healthcare system and enhance opportunities for employment, self-employment and entrepreneurship,” the LG said.

He said with peace prevailing in J&K since the past three years, the place is fast emerging as the most preferred investment destinations of the country. “The red tape has been replaced with the red carpet for investors,” he said. “We are offering opportunities in various fields of food processing, vegetables, bakery production and nutraceuticals. GI certification will help investors to create global brands and create international standards of food safety and quality.”
