Visakhapatnam gears up for 3rd BRICS Urbanisation Forum Meet

In Andhra Pradesh, the Visakhapatnam district administration and city police are geared up for the smooth conduct of the 3rd BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) Urbanisation Forum Meet with the theme- “Building responsive, inclusive and collective solutions for urbanisation”.
The Union government had selected Visakhapatnam for hosting the summit wherein delegates will discuss investments, urbanisation, formation of new cities and policies and will explore solutions for the challenges. The conference would discuss how to increase the productivity, how to make a separate urban finance system and creation of employment opportunities.

The three-day meet beginning today will be inaugurated by Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu in the presence of Union Minister of Urban Development, M. Venkaiah Naidu and other dignitaries.

With an eye on promoting ‘Sunrise Andhra Pradesh’ on the global arena, the state government had also gone all out with convening several high-level meetings as well as forming an array of committees to oversee the proceedings of the meet. Based on the discussions and deliberations during the three days, ‘Vizag Declaration’ will be prepared, which would play a vital role in the ministers’ conference of BRICS to be held on October 15 and 16 in Goa.


About 70 delegates from Brazil, China, Russia and South Africa will be attending the three-day summit.


Apart from them, there will be over 230 delegates from India. Security has been beefed up in the city with elite forces at the venues of the meetings, while Navy, Coast Guard and Coastal Security Police will augment the security arrangements and check threats from the seaside. The city got a facelift with beautification works taken up by the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) and other organisations. Several committees, each headed by a senior officer have been formed to take care of every arrangement. Cultural programmes will be conducted at Novotel hotel on September 14 and atop Kailasagiri on September 15.
