Join us as we speak to Mrs. Midhat Shahzad, the former Secretary for Tourism, Information, and IT for the Govt. of Azad Jammu & Kashmir. We discuss the special status of Kashmir & GB, the constitution, the ongoing development work, and the increased focus on tourism in Kashmir.
Mrs. Midhat Shahzad talks about how she and her team chalked out the first-ever Azad Jammu and Kashmir tourism policy (2019), which focuses on sustainable and inclusive tourism development. She also discusses how this policy is enabling and regulating private companies and groups to make the best use of the land and resources of Kashmir to make it a true haven for tourists.
She also details how the Tourism Promotion Act (2019 & 2020) provides a mechanism for investors interested in the AJ&K tourism sector.
