of Arunachal Pradesh
is a chart of trend of gross state domestic product of Arunachal
Pradesh at market prices estimated by Ministry of Statistics and
Programme Implementation with figures in millions of Indian Rupees.
Arunachal Pradesh's gross state domestic product for 2004 is
estimated at $706 million in current prices. Agriculture is the
primary driver of the economy. Jhum, the local word for shifting
cultivation, which was widely practised among the tribal groups has
come to be less practiced. Arunachal Pradesh has close to 61,000
square kilometers of forests, and the forest-products are the next
most significant sector of the economy. Among the crops grown here
are rice, maize, millet, wheat, pulses, sugarcane, ginger and
oilseeds. Arunachal is also ideal for horticulture and fruit
orchards. Its major industries are sawmills, plywood (these two
trades however have been stopped by law), rice mills, fruit
preservation units and handloom handicrafts.
