Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday said European design and engineering group, Dassault Systems, is building a “virtual Amaravati” for creating development models for Andhra Pradesh’s new capital city.

He said that the Andhra Pradesh Government and the French 3D experience company are working on the “Virtual Amaravati” as the world’s first of its kind technology-driven clean and green city.
