Andhra Pradesh has been elevated from a Forum Member Associate at the World Economic Forum to the prestigious "Forum Platform Partner" by signing the Platform Partnership for Shaping the Future of Advanced Manufacturing and Value Chains. The agreement will be signed in the presence of Prof. Klaus Schwabb, the founder and chairman of WEF.

By virtue of the partnership, the government of Andhra Pradesh will have access to full participation in the CEO-level interactions, public figure dialogues, projects, and workshops of the platform. The partnership will also grant access to join peer-level communities of common interest such as Industry Action Groups and Strategy Officers communities, annual meetings, and high-level exchanges, including its Sustainable Development Impact Summit and Global virtual discussions.

The state government said it is planning to take the growth story of Andhra Pradesh to the global forum to highlight the efforts that are in place to meet the sustainable development goals, adopt sustainable manufacturing, and transition to a decarbonised economy.

"This would be an effective platform to discuss and share the future vision and strategy to make Andhra Pradesh a preferred investment destination. It will also be an ideal platform to present the state's vision on the "Navaratnalu" welfare schemes and how the state is making this a reality for the people of Andhra Pradesh," said Buggana Rajendranath, the state minister for skill development and training.

Jagan's delegation to the WEF will include Gudivada Amarnath, minister for industries, infrastructure, investment, and commerce; Buggana Rajendranath, minister for finance, skill development and training; Member of Parliament P.V Midhun Reddy; Mettu Govinda Reddy, chairman of APIIC; and senior IAS officers.

WEF annual meeting was initially set to be held from 17 to 22 January this year but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 52nd Annual Meeting being held at Davos, Switzerland, brings together around 2,200 business leaders, international political leaders, economists, celebrities, and journalists to discuss global, regional, and industry challenges.
