The North Eastern region has the highest concentration of Bamboo resources in the country. Bamboo, which is the fastest growing plant has the potential to replace wood in the future. India ranks 2nd largest in bamboo resources in the world, next only to China.
In this sector there are opportunities for reinventing bamboo in plywood units and bamboo mills, micro propagation and production, shoot processing, industrial products/ gasification, fiber and thermoplastics etc. A Bamboo Park is under construction at Chaygaon.
