INDUSTRIAL OPPORTUNITIES
          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.
