VIJAYAWADA:  Principal secretary of the Department of Industries J S Venkateswara Prasad has said that the government is making efforts to create world-class infrastructural facilities in AP to encourage setting up of new industries. “We want to follow the Chinese model of creating infrastructural facilities first and then set up new industries,” he said.
