He added that the signed MoU gives out a strong signal to the entire world that the way India has been transforming into a global power, J&K is having a significant role in that as well.


The Memorandum of Understanding between India and Dubai will be a milestone after which the investment will pour in from the entire globe and will be a big developmental push.

According to the Lieutenant Governor of Jammu & Kashmir Manoj Sinha, the development journey will help the Union Territory to scale the new heights in industrialization and sustainable growth.

First investment by foreign government in J&K

The MoU signed between India and Dubai will be the first investment agreement by a foreign government in the region, after the scrapping of special status to Jammu & Kashmir and the division of the state into two Union Territories.

An accord to build infrastructure in J&K has also come at a time when the region is seeing a resurgence in violence.
