Srinagar, Nov 9: In a significant move to boost the international recognition of every district in the region, the government of Jammu and Kashmir has unveiled the “District as Export Hub Scheme.” Under this innovative initiative, more than 75 unique products from 20 districts are set to be promoted and exported to the global market.
The scheme encompasses a diverse range of products, including cricket bats from Anantnag, red rice from Kupwara, and various handicrafts and agricultural produce. The government’s aim is to leverage the exceptional natural resources, craftsmanship, and expertise found in each district to gain international acclaim.
Anantnag, renowned for its cricket bats, walnuts, Mushkbudji, honey, red chillies, and trout fish, will soon export these products to a global audience. Similarly, Kani Shawl, Sozni, and Crewel from Budgam district, red rice and walnuts from Kupwara, and various products from other districts, including Ganderbal, Bandipora, Pulwama, Shopian, Srinagar, and Jammu division, are part of this ambitious scheme.
The Jammu and Kashmir Trade Promotion Organization has devised a model to transform every district into an export hub. The government is actively supporting artisans, growers, and manufacturers to enhance production and maintain high-quality standards. With this initiative, each district aims to make a mark in the international market and boost the region’s economic growth.
The “District as Export Hub Scheme” represents a promising step towards showcasing the rich and diverse heritage of Jammu and Kashmir to the world, while also contributing to the economic development of the region.
