Singapore will help the Government of Andhra Pradesh develop its new capital city, believed to come up somewhere close to Vijayawada.

An official delegation led by former Singapore Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong met Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on September 8, 2014 and offered support to the state government.

The Chief Minister informed the delegation about his plans of transforming Andhra Pradesh into a logistics and manufacturing hub. The delegation offered to share their experience in designing the new capital city and ensure that it would encourage Singapore-based companies to participate in various port, airport, industrial and tourism projects.

The Singapore delegation suggested to Naidu that funds could be tapped from the proposed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank — of which India is also a founding member.

The delegation also extended an invitation to the Chief Minister to visit Singapore. The AP Government’s committee on development of capital city will also visit Singapore and other capitals in the country and world to study their models. Besides Singapore, Putrajaya, Brasilia and Dubai would be studied.
