Andhra Pradesh Tourism working on six marquee projects

On the opening day of the three-day CII Partnershsip Summit by Andhra Pradesh (AP) Tourism, Mukesh Kumar Meena, I.A.S, Secretary to Government, Tourism & Culture, Government of AP said that the tourism department is working on six marquee projects which will offer tremendous growth and potential for investments in the state.

Addressing delegates, he said that the Special Tourism Zone at Madhurawada and INS Virat aircraft carrier museum in Visakhapatnam, Havelock Bridge in Rajahmundry, Bhavani Island in the middle of Krishna river in Vijayawada, Kakinada Hope Island under Swadesh Darshan scheme in East Godavari district, and Gandikota Fort in Guntur district would be developed with private participation. The major challenge identified is availabaility of infrastructure.

In terms of domestic tourism, Andhra Pradesh ranks third in the country after Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh. It was mostly religious tourism where people reach places like Tirupati, have darshan and stay for two or three hours before leaving. "It would not contribute to the economy unless and until we increase the length of stay of tourists which can be done by creating the infrastructure and make their stay enjoyable," Meena observed.
