Vijayawada is the commercial capital of Andhra Pradesh, and located in a highly fertile rich and economically active area. McKinsey considers Vijayawada as a Global City of the Future.
The Krishna river cuts through the city, and the plains around the area have their soil considerably enhanced by its presence. Another natural relief to Vijayawada’s urban sprawl is the Kondapalli Reserve forest located on its western outskirts spread over almost 30,000 acres and home to a variety of flora and fauna.
The major crops in the area include sugarcane, rice and mango. But Vijaywada is best known for its industrial output, including automotive parts, power projects, heavy electricals, heavy machinery, engineering, and railway wagon production.
Vijayawada is an important road, rail, and air link for the northern part of Andhra Pradesh with the rest of the country. The city is one of the most pleasurable in the area to live in with over 60 parks, well maintained utilities, and many opportunities for entertainment and revelry.
