HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu today advised trainee IAS officers to work heard and undertake in-depth study of different issues to excel in their career.
He was addressing the trainees at the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration at Mussorie in Uttarakhand.
A Government release issued here quoted Naidu as saying that IAS officers had a key role in his success in implementing economic reforms and welfare programmes during his stint as Chief Minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh (1995 to 2004).
Naidu said only countries like South Korea, Singapore and China have achieved double digit economic growth.
China is making optimum utilisation of its sea-based resources, said the Chief Minister, who recently visited the Communist country.
Noting that Andhra Pradesh, post-bifurcation, is faced with revenue deficit, Naidu expressed confidence that he would develop the state which is rich in natural resources.
Observing that AP has a long sea coast, he said the state would emerge as a major player in the economic development of the country.
Naidu interacted with the budding bureaucrats during his visit to the academy, which imparts training to officers before they formally join service after clearing UPSC examination, the release added.
