The conclave was addressed by Principal Secretary Industries and Commerce Prashat Goyal, Director EDI Ajaz Ahmmad Bhat and several business leaders of Kashmir.

“ There is a huge potential to invest in tourism , waste management and energy sector in Kashmir and the positive thing about Kashmir is that both boys and girls are highly educated here and this is not the case with muslims living in UP , Maharashtra , Bihar or West Bengal. He said that during the last 35 years there has been no investments in Kashmir and this was the time when other cities and states in India got a huge push with massive investments from MNCs. Kashmiris suffered a lot due to violence and now it was the time to work for development and I am ready to act as a bridge between Kashmir and other reputed companies who want to invest in various sectors. I am thinking of investing in around 200 luxury cabs that would be made available for tourists. I would love to treat the waste that is taken out of Dal Lake , Fruit Mandis and Wullar lake and make useful things out of it . I am thinking of producing organic compost , compressed biogas (CBG) and CNG from the biodegradable waste in Kashmir. There is good potential to set up small hydropower projects or solar plants and we can explore that as well” said Pyare Khan
