Orissa is endowed with vast natural and human resources which can be used for futher industrial development. Mineral deposits like Iron Ore, Manganese Ore,Chromite,Bauxite, Ggraphite etc and agricultural surplus like Rice, pulses, Oil seeds, Vegetables, Spices offers vast scope for establishing new industries in Orissa, Cheap unskilled labour force are available in the district as more than 80% of the total population of the state lives in rural areas. Similarly skilled labour are also available adequately to work in the industries. State is also endowed with attractive tourism potential in the form of culture, heritage and economy. But technical and skilled entrepreneurs are rarely available and adequate infrastructural facilities in different areas is not sufficient for establishing new industries. Therefore, despite its vast natural and human resources, Orissa continues to be one of the industrially backward states.
