Port cargo creating employment opportunities in AP

Ports in Andhra Pradesh are growing at 15% a year, which has allowed the government to build strategies to make the ports the best in the country in cargo handling.

The chief minister of Andhra Pradesh has asked the authorities to build green-field commercial ports along the coastal line in strategic locations. This will help in making the ports in AP the best in the country in handling cargo.

Naidu who was in a teleconference with the infrastructure, energy and industry departments said that the state of AP has become a very popular destination to pull in port-related investments, considering the investor-friendly climate in AP.

The traffic figures of the port indicate that the state is slowly becoming a major port hub and they are also looking at establishing new ports in the future. This would help in creating job opportunities in the state.

Kakinada special economic zone (KSEZ) was all set to develop a port in Kona village in Tondangi madal in East Godavari district.

The KSEZ port will connect north AP, south Chhattisgarh, east Maharashtra, and Orrisa. The port is set to directly or indirectly provide employment opportunities to the surrounding areas of the port.
