Jammu and Kashmir, the northern-most state of India, shares its international border with China, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The state is well-connected with an international airport in Srinagar and two domestic airports in Jammu and Leh. J&K has agro-climatic conditions best suited for horticulture and floriculture. Horticulture is the mainstay of the rural economy, providing employment to large number of local inhabitants. The state has tremendous potential in the areas like mineral wealth; forestry; horticulture/agriculture; tourism; hydroelectric power; and value-added industrial potential. The state is naturally pollution-free and provides a salubrious environment to the resident population. Also, the natural beauty and picturesque locations have made it a traditional destination for international and domestic tourists.
