Vijayawada, Jan 25: Andhra Pradesh government's efforts at World Economic Forum in Davos to attract MNCs to invest in the state have proved to be successful, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu claimed here today.
"The government gave wide publicity to its 'Sunrise Andrha Pradesh' and 'Make in Andhra' at Davos. The multi-national units also appreciated our efforts to build Amaravati (new capital of AP) with a new concept," Naidu told reporters.
He said "the world knows that while India's economic growth stood at 7-8 per cent, that of Andhra Pradesh at 11.5 per cent whereas other countries including China are facing recession". Naidu said he had invited University of Cambridge and University of Singapore to set up their campuses in the state.
"Setting up of such universities would show the way for our youths to improve their knowledge and skills," the CM added. He said that companies like Airbus, Nestle, Siemens, besides leading industrialists have evinced their interest in investing in AP.
