It is learnt that the proposed facility would be the largest mill ever in India. Reports said the management of APP met with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu at the Interim Government Complex in Velagapudi and requested his government to allocate 2,500 acres of land near a port in the State for setting up of the paper mill.
Suresh Kilam, executive director of marketing, APP, who led the team, has informed Naidu that that company will start production within two-and-half-years if the State government allocates the required land.
Asia Pulp & Paper, also known in the paper industry as APP, based in Jakarta, Indonesia, is one of the largest pulp and paper companies in the world.
