Indian-origin youth from 8 nations meet Andhra Governor

Hyderabad: A group of Indian-origin youth from eight countries met Governor Biswa Bhusan Harichandan at the Raj Bhavan as part of ‘Know India’, an orientation program organized by the Ministry of External Affairs for diaspora youth to promote awareness on different facets of India and the progress made by it in various fields thereby fostering closer bonds among the people.

The youth belonged to Fiji, Guyana, Mauritius, Myanmar, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago, media reported this week.

The Governor stated that Andhra Pradesh was consistently ranked as No.1 in ‘Ease-of-Doing Business’ and offered excellent investment opportunities in biotechnology, information technology, textiles and leather, automotive and auto components and agriculture sectors.

Harichandan said Andhra Pradesh stands as a symbol of unity in diversity and Telugu, the official language of the State, was known as the Italian of the East. He said Andhra Pradesh was the second largest producer of silk in India and has the largest offshore gas field at Krishna-Godavari basin.

“It has been in the forefront in leveraging information technology and it was ranked fifth in good governance index,” Harichandan told the Indian-origin youth.
