Chandrababu Naidu in Visakhapatnam today, referring to the state’s 974 km coastline while addressing the elite gathering. Naidu outlined his strategy to make AP the largest trade gateway for India to countries in the east, citing the Visakhapatnam-Kakinada Industrial Area Development Authority which will boost trade with countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, China and Japan. “It is planned as a mega city with state-of-the-art infrastructure and civic amenities,” the Chief Minister said, adding that an international airport is on the anvil, with three sea ports having excellent deep waters ready.
