It is endowed with rich, green land of rolling plains, fertile valleys and dense forests. It is famous worldwide for one horned rhinoceros and other rare species of wildlife.

Being the land of eternal blue hills and beautiful rivers, the State is renowned for its rich flora and fauna. It is endowed with abundant fertile land and water resources. It is the largest economy in the North-East and is known for its large industries in the tea and petroleum sectors. Assam tea commands a significant share in the world tea market. The State acts as a source of several raw materials for both agricultural and industrial development and thus it provides a large domestic market for the North Eastern region. Guwahati, the capital of Assam is the hub of all commercial and trade activities. Besides, Assam has one of the largest network of higher education in the entire North East.

It provides a strategic base for foreign and domestic investors to tap the vast potential of contiguous markets of Myanmar, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Cambodia, Indonesia, etc. Besides, Assam's proximity to the countries like Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan attracts more and more foreign investors into the State.
