History

Inhabited mostly by fishermen’s communities in earlier times, Visakhapatnam today is the largest city in the present Andhra Pradesh. With industrial and port-based trade and economic activities, the city is a driver of growth for the state. It used to be known by the name of Vizagapatam until the 1930s and 1940s. According to archaeological records, Visakhapatnam was built around the 11th century CE, and the control over the city changed hands between the Chola Dynasty and Gajapati kingdom until it was conquered by the Vijayanagara Empire in the 15th century. Later, it went into the hands of Mughals in the 16th century. By the end of the 18th century, it had come under the French rule, the control was passed on to the British in 1804, and it remained under the British rule until independence got in the year 1947.

After independence, the city developed into one of the country’s chief ports and became the headquarters of the Eastern Naval Command. Also, Visakhapatnam is a popular tourist destination in South India.

Apart from port-based trade and economic activity, the presence of a number of large public-sector enterprises like Vizag Steel (RINL), BHPV, Vizag Shipyard and HPCL make the city a predominantly industrial one. Formed in the year 1931, Vizagapatam Chamber of Commerce and Industry is one of the oldest chambers of commerce in India.
