Amaravathi sources have reported that the United States authorities had previously turned down the requests made by the Chandrababu Naidu led Andhra government to make Ivanka visit the state. Meanwhile, AP's Economic Development Board (EDB) chief executive J Krishna Kishore had forwarded the issue to the US authorities on behalf of the state government.
Meanwhile as per the report from sources the Andhra government, as part of its "brand building" efforts, had felt that a visit by the US president's daughter would bolster the southern state's image internationally. Further, it also wanted to line up several US companies for investments in Andhra Pradesh.
A senior official who was involved in the entire process told the state government had informed the US Consulate authorities that they were ready to organise the event either in Amaravati or Visakhapatnam, and had sought Ivanka's time. He said "But they were told that she would not be attending any other program, apart from the GES and those in New Delhi. So, they did not get a chance to host Ivanka".
