Vijayawada, the proposed capital city of new Andhra Pradesh, is likely to get a Japanese-touch. A high-profile delegation from Jagapan has recently met Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and proposed him that they’re keen to build a smart city between Vijayawada and Guntur. That’s not all. The Japanese delegation also wants to set up power projects- 4000 MW thermal power ini Visakhapatnam, 4000 MW thermal power in Srikakulam and 2000 MW solar power in Anantapur.

The Japanese authorities also told Naidu that they’re keen in “sharing” agricultural technology and food processing technology and their techniques with Andhra Pradesh. The team pitched for setting up an industrial park, food park and cold-storage units.

However, Chandrababu hasn’t assured anything to the delegation. Naidu, who will be visiting Japan in Novemeber, will take his final call soon after returning from the trip.
