|A long way to go|
In the past few years, there has been a fair amount of progress in Andhra Pradesh. But progress doesn’t happen overnight. The progress taking place in cities has also taken its own time. Even places like Hyderabad, Bangalore, Gurgaon or Pune did take time, around more than five years to come to a particular shape. So, if we are expecting a magic to happen in places like Vishakhapatnam or even Tirupati, it would be unrealistic. However, things are taking place in the right direction to some extent. The other important factor that is extremely important for the industries to come up is infrastructure – something that the industry requires and the one required as part of the social fabric). The second part is availability of talent. Both these things must be addressed. Moreover, societal fabric is extremely important. That’s one area where we think we have to go a long way.
