One of the government's key focus areas has been on employment-intensive sectors such as metal and metal downstream; the state is considered India's mineral hub, with reserves of 92 percent chromite, 92 percent nickel, 52 percent bauxite, 44 percent manganese, 33 percent iron ore, and 24 percent coal. Odisha produces over half of the country's iron ore, making it an attractive site for establishing steel plants. These sectors provide a wide range of prospects in a single package. Given the vast trained workforce in this sector, such industries contribute significantly to the state's employment.
