NAGALAND State Report | March, 2014

Nagaland is located in the northeast of India. The state is surrounded by Myanmar on the east, Arunachal Pradesh on the north, Assam on the west, and Manipur on the south.

Nagaland’s agro-climatic conditions favour agriculture, horticulture and forestry, offering immense potential in these areas. The state has considerable resources of natural minerals, petroleum and hydropower.

Nagaland has around 600 million metric tonnes (MMT) of crude oil and more than 20 MT of hydrocarbon reserves, which are unexploited. Moreover, over 1000 MT of high chemical grade limestone reserves can be found in the eastern region.

The state provides institutional support through various central and state government agencies such as North East Council, Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region and Nagaland Industrial Development Council.

Nagaland offers excellent policy and fiscal incentives for agro-based and forest-based industries, horticulture, food processing, mining, tourism and the handlooms and handicrafts sectors. Transport and communication connectivity is good. Industrial centres and special economic zones (SEZs) are being developed to enhance the marketability of products.
