Investing in cities ahead of demand, says Naidu

Keen on developing cities by design,not demand

Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has reaffirmed his Government’s commitment to invest in the cities in anticipation of future requirements and give them freedom to raise substantial investment resources by monetising their land assets.

The Chief Minister said the Government was exploring opportunities with companies across the world to find partners to develop state of the art urban solutions. “Andhra Pradesh does not want to under invest in its cities,” he averred. The Chief Minister was addressing the participants of the World Economic Forum meeting in Tianjin in China on Monday.

He elaborated the State Government’s efforts to build a world-class city in Amaravati which had historical background and said “we are keen on developing cities by design not on demand”. Accordingly, the Government was striving to invest in network of the cities — integrating the smaller towns around the core region. It had taken adequate care to ensure participatory planning involving stakeholders at all stages.

Mr. Naidu explained how he could pool over 33,000 acres through the land pooling scheme for the development of Amaravati. Plans for the capital city region, capital city and its seed capital were all ready with international participation and local advice. The Government, at the same time, had taken steps to build capacity and governance in the urban bodies and had undertaken reforms in the process of building cities which could compete to attract investment to generate economic activity.

Mr. Naidu had also participated in a meeting on food security wherein the agriculture sector was faced with the challenge of producing more food, more efficiently and more sustainably. This would require the four pillars — namely food availability, access, use and overall stability — that determine the food security. The process was, however, fraught with challenges, among others, in the form of land use change, population growth, global water crisis, land degradation and climate change.

The agriculture sector faced problems like inadequate adoption of technology, inadequate infrastructure for transportation and storage and lack of remunerative prices. He explained about the emphasis given by his Government for the development of agriculture sector which was categorised into primary sector.
