Assam is India’s gateway to Northeast India and acts as a vital link for trade with Southeast Asian countries.Its proximity to the SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries of Bangladesh, Nepal, and Bhutan gives rise to investment potential for foreign investors taking advantage of the dynamic possibilities of intra regional trade through SAFTA (South Asian Free Trade Agreement).The sate is rich in water resource and has vast tracts of fertile land. Assam is also the third-largest producer of petroleum and natural gas in the country with ample reserves of limestone. Potential areas of investment include power and energy, mineral-based industries, tourism, agriculture, food processing, textile, inland water transport, river front development, IT&ITes, and tourism.
