|Four new mobile manufacturing units are to be set up in the temple town soon, making it a ‘digital city’ and creating a plethora of employment opportunities, according to chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu. He said this while participating in the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Celkon’s new mobile manufacturing unit at Sri Venkateswara Mobile and Electronics Manufacturing Hub (SVMEMH).|
Later, speaking at the Celkon’s meeting, he said that the holy city would soon acquire one more tag as a ‘digital city’ as thousands of acres of land on the outskirts of the city would accommodate for new mobile hardware manufacturing companies.
He said: “After the bifurcation of the state there was a proposal to make AP an Information Technology (IT) hub just like Hyderabad. The proposal also included creation of a hardware sector considering its vast growth potential,” he said.
Calling upon the other international and national-level mobile manufacturing units to become part of developing AP state, Naidu mentioned some of the advantages of the SVMEMH. “Tirupati, especially the SVMEMH, is a locality having no water crisis due to the presence of more than 100 lakes in and around the city. And then there is a proposal by the Centre to make Tirupati a Smart City. The newly-established international airport terminal will help ease imports and exports,” he explained. The facilities and infrastructure make it easy for establishing businesses, he added.
The CM also said that abundant mineral wealth and coastal corridor of the state would help the prospective industries and companies to successfully carry on their businesses. The government was ready to create a friendly atmosphere for the companies interested in investing in the state, he maintained.
