Hyderabad|India|July'2012: The Chief Minister Sri N.Kiran
Kumar Reddy advised the Industrialists, Businessmen who want to establish
industries and start business should take special care of evacuees i.e.,
farmers, fishermen who are losing their land and livelihood. Otherwise it
may lead to agitations. We should have peaceful work culture. People first
and the development to follow -- this is the Government's policy, the
Chief Minister added. Some share of the profit of the business should go
to the people, he advised.
The Chief Minister released "India Today Business Wizards of Andhra
Pradesh 2012" Coffee Table Book, here at Taj Krishna, tonight. Speaking on
the occasion, the Chief Minister said that Andhra Pradesh is sound,
stable, strong and resurgent. It has garnered all its energies,
experiences and most significantly the maturity of its governance to
resolve any kind of problem it may face.
The Chief Minister said that Andhra Pradesh has chosen for the 'Investment
Driven Economies Award' in the India's Most Competitive State Awards 2012
initiative by Harvard Business School.
The Chief Minister has also informed that we have wonderful human
resources and it is our duty to show right direction to the youth who are
54%, below 25 years of age in the State. Education and Skill development
should be synchronized with Industry, the Chief Minister added. The Chief
Minister complimented the workers of Singareni Collieries who achieved
record production last year even during highest non-working days recorded.
He stated that in business, manpower is most important and land, water,
electricity fall in line and advised the industrialists to move to rural
areas and agri-based industries to set up--food processing, cold storage,
packaging, transportation, marketing, value addition. The Chief Minister
said that every year our country is importing Rs.30,000 crore worth
palmoil on one hand and the palm farmer is not getting remunerative for
his produce in the state on the other hand.
That is why he requested the Planning Commission to provide Rs.10,000
crores for the development of palm cultivation in the state in a span of
five years and the entire country's palmoil requirement will be produced
in our state only, the Chief Minister informed.
The Chief Minister said that frequent policy change affects the industrial
sector and consistency in the policy should be there for the survival of
the industry and said that 8,000 MW capacity gas based power generation
plants established in the state and now they are facing scarcity of gas.
Speaking on this occasion, the Housing Minister Sri Uttham Kumar Reddy
said Andhra Pradesh has produced great entrepreneurs not only for India
but all over the Globe. Despite some negative image propaganda by some
section of people, during the recent Partnership summit, the state got
proposals for 6.5 lakh crores of investments.
