HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has sought the cooperation of Australia to build infrastructure like roads and drainage networks in the new state. 

He made the request to a delegation led by Brisbane mayor Graham Quirk which met him here on Wednesday.

Naidu told them that Andhra Pradesh had abundant natural resources, a 1,000-km-long coastline and other advantages need for creating wealth. The government was focusing on building basic infrastructure as well as on sectors like IT, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and, most importantly, power, he said.

“But we have a few impediments in our way. It is just a matter of time before Andhra Pradesh emerges as one of the top three states in the country,” Naidu said.

Meanwhile, Naidu reviewed the functioning of various departments with secretaries and HoDs at his camp office. He asked the HoDs to take the government’s seven missions to people through the five flagship campaigns.
