Andhra governmentThe Andhra Pradesh government will promote tourism in the state in an aggressive manner. The Andhra Pradesh government has shortlisted 13 firms in the tourism sector to set up their ventures in the state. The worth of each project is Rs. 20 crores to Rs. 200 crores. The firms from the neighbouring countries like Nepal are also showing interest to set up shops in the state.

 

The projects that are planned in the state include theme parks, resorts, go-karting tracks, five-star hotels and amusement parks. The reason that these firms are showing interest in the state is its excellent air, rail and road connectivity. A lot of proposals have come in the discussion but the authorities have finally zeroed in on 13 firms after final scrutiny.

 

The state’s Tourism minister B Akhila Priya is likely to announce the names of the shortlisted firms at a formal meeting next week in Vijayawada on December 22nd. The government would allocate land to the firms but the firms would have to pay 5% of the land value as a lease amount to the government per year.
