MANIPUR State Report | March, 2014

Manipur is situated in the easternmost corner of Northeast India. The state shares borders with other northeastern states of Nagaland, Mizoram and Assam and the neighbouring country of Myanmar. Manipur has the advantage of acting as India’s ‘Gateway to the East’ through Moreh town, which is the only feasible land route for trade between India and Myanmar and other Southeast Asian countries.

With about 3,268 square km of area covered by bamboo forests, Manipur is one of India’s largest bamboo producing states and a major contributor to the country’s bamboo industry. It has the highest number of handicrafts units as well as the highest number of craftspersons, comprising skilled and semi-skilled artisans, in the entire northeastern region.

Manipur holds significant cultivation potential for various horticultural crops due to varied agro-climatic conditions. Entrepreneurs get easy access to process and market a wide variety of rare and exotic medicinal and aromatic plants grown in the state. To facilitate investment, the state government has set up single window facilitation with escort mechanism, which provides coordination with departments for all services and clearances required for the expeditious establishment of industrial units.
