Mizoram is one of the seven northeastern states of India. Mizoram shares its borders with Tripura to the northwest, Assam to the north, and Manipur to the northeast. It also touches international borders: Myanmar to the east and south and Bangladesh to the west. The formation of Mizoram as a state took place on February 20, 1987. The capital of Mizoram is Aizawl, which is about 3715 ft above sea level.

About three-fourths of the population earns their livelihood from agriculture. Paddy, maize, mustard, sugarcane, sesame, fiberless ginger, and potatoes are the main crops grown in this area.

Its economy depends on forest products, silkworms, tourism, and horticulture. The climatic conditions in Mizoram are ideal for the breeding of all types of silkworms. Sericulture is one of the major industries in Mizoram. The state produced raw silk around 88 metric tonnes during April-December 2019.

Mizoram is known for a generation of hydropower. It has the potential to generate 4,500 megawatts (MW) of hydropower. Small-scale irrigation projects have been developing to increase crop yield. But there is a dearth of big industries in the state. 

Small-scale industries include sericulture, handloom and handicrafts industries, sawmills and furniture workshops, oil refining, grain milling, and ginger processing are running. The service sector comprises Tourism, Real Estate, and Insurance.
