‘Political stability and predictable policy framework’ have made India an attractive investment destination, Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently said, while urging Indian business leaders in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to invest in Jammu and Kashmir, which could emerge as India’s growth engine. He was addressing non-resident Indian businessmen in Abu Dhabi.

Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) has been neglected for years and the union territory along with Ladakh are two zones having the potential to become the biggest tourist destination in the world, and where there is a huge scope for development, report quoted Modi as saying.

“Several herbal and organic products are scattered across J&K and Ladakh. If they are identified and marketed in the global market, then it will greatly benefit the people and farmers of these regions. I urge the enterprises from all over India to come forward for this,” Modi said in his address.
