In line with his ‘Make in AP’ policy, Sri City emerges as one of the most preferred investment destinations, boosting local manufacturing which, in turn, will give a fillip to creation of jobs and get the economy of state and region on a fast track. The need of the hour is creating employment in the region, and we are very happy to note that all these companies would provide direct employment for about 4,000 people,” he added.
