Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is embarking on a three-nation tour next week to seek investments into the state. Accompanied by a high-level delegation, he will travel to the USA, UAE and UK from October 18 to 26.
Naidu will leave from here on October 17 and return on October 27, according to an official communique. During his visit to the UK, the chief minister is also expected to finalise designs of the two "iconic buildings" (legislature complex and the High Court) to be built in the new capital city Amaravati. Naidu will receive the Golden Peacock award for corporate governance and sustainability from the Institute of Directors, London. The chief minister will lead a high-level delegation comprising ministers Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, P Narayana and senior bureaucrats from the state, the release said. Naidu led a similar delegation to the USA in May this year. He will be visiting New York City, Chicago and Iowa during the first leg of his visit from October 18 to 20. After visiting the UAE from October 21 to 23, the delegation will be in the UK from October 24 to 26. During his tour to these three countries, Naidu will hold talks with business leaders and invite them to invest in Andhra Pradesh, the release added. In London, the CM will inspect the designs prepared by world-renowned architectural firm Fosters+Partners and "finalise" the designs of the iconic structures. Last month, he rejected the designs submitted by the firm and asked them to prepare the designs afresh by taking "inputs" from film director S S Rajamouli of "Baahubali" fame. Incidentally, the AP Capital Region Development Authority officials will lead Rajamouli to Fosters in London from October 11 to 13 to give his inputs for the government buildings to be built in Amaravati.
