Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha today addressed the valedictory session of International Symposium on “Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh: Development Dynamics and Future Trajectories”.
The two-day long symposium was organized by Swami Vivekananda Cultural Centre, Embassy of India, Seoul, Republic of Korea in collaboration with Indian Council of Cultural Relations; Institute of East and West Studies, Yonsei University; India Foundation, and Jammu – Kashmir Study Centre
Sharing Jammu and Kashmir’s journey towards development and prosperity, the Lt Governor observed that J&K’s development and growth model revolves around 4 P’s – Peace, Progress, Prosperity, and People-First.
J&K is an example of immortal organic composite Indian culture. The sense of cohesion that we see today is significantly contributing to equitable opportunity and strengthening integrated, accountable, and transparent governance, said the Lt Governor.Despite the country emerging as the fastest growing economy, developmental speed and spread in J&K were hindered through artificial barriers. The three dimensions of sustainable development – economic growth, environmental sustainability, and social inclusion- were completely missing. Regional aspirations were neglected and accumulation of growth happened at the hands of a few, he added.
Speaking on the transformation taking place in J&K, the Lt Governor observed that the implementation framework based on SEED– Speed, Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Delivery has helped in creating a roadmap to achieve sustainable growth.
