Looks like the whole world went Ga Ga with the charisma of AP Chief Minister Sri N Chandrababu Naidu. His recent visit to Davos proved to be a massive hit, with all eyes now on Andhra. So much so that even the prestigious World Economic Forum made some new plans with AP.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) has offered to partner with Andhra Pradesh government to make agriculture profitable and commercially viable by bringing in best practices from across the world. Addressing a session on ‘The New Vision for Agriculture: Advancing the Action Agenda’ at the WEF’s annual summit at Davos on Friday, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu explained the State government’s vision to create a knowledgeable farmers’ community in the State.
The WEF and Andhra Pradesh will work towards bringing in best practices, improve the value chain and improve the incomes of farmers. WEF has already created sub-groups to study and implement best agricultural practices in South America, Africa, Asia and pacific regions.
The studies from these groups will be implemented in Andhra Pradesh to enhance productivity and profitability in agriculture.
The Chief Minister also gave an overview to the delegates on Primary Sector Mission and the irrigation initiatives, including the linking of Godavari and Krishna rivers taken up by the State.
He said the government took a brave step by launching debt redemption scheme for farmers in spite of revenue deficit.
