Stone-laying ceremony on Oct 22



Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu will call on Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Tuesday and invite him to take part in the Amaravati capital city foundation stone laying ceremony to be held in October 22.

Despite challenges, the Chief Minister said, the Government sees capital building as one of the greatest advantages for the State.

“Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has accepted our invitation to lay the foundation for Amaravati on October 22. I will be meeting Singapore Prime Minister and invite him for the historic occasion,” the Chief Minister said.

During a public lecture at the Institute of South Asian Studies (ISAS) moderated by Ambassador Gopinath Pillai, the Chief Minister said: “I first asked them (Singapore) to come up with a Master Plan for our Capital. They did. Now, I'm now asking Singapore to join us to build our capital. I’m hopeful they will come forward to do this as well.”

“Amaravati will not only serve as an administrative area but also model itself as a economy and knowledge driver,” he said.

During the meeting with Singapore Minister Iswaran, Naidu discussed various issues relating to development of Amaravati, according to a statement from the Chief Minister’s Office.

The Chief Minister said India, China and the US will be the leading economies in the world by 2050.

The Chief Minister is leading a delegation, including State Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, on a two-day trip to Singapore.
