2. Strong presence in local market
3. Availability of cheaper labor
4. Geographically situated at ideal location (near end users)
5. Most setups are self-employed and have simpler management structure
2 Weaknesses
1. Obsolete technology machinery and equipment used for manufacturing
2. Availability of raw material and inconsistent raw material prices
3. Unskilled labor (only 1% workers have certificate / diploma from technical training
institutions)
4. Absence of research and development culture
5. Lack of synergies between Govt. support institutions and practical market.
6. Lack of standardization and quality control
7. Non-sophisticated marketing sense. (Branding& grading)

SWOT Analysis of Tourism industry in Sikkim

Strengths: Sikkims greatest strength is its political and social stability. In an age when the
pollution has become a major concern, its environment remains pollution free environment with
a rich biodiversity. Add to that the high literacy and hospitable people, and an all climate zones
and the state has potential to be another Switzerland.
Weakness: The most pressing concern for this Himalayan Heaven to emerge as a top tourist
destination remains its poor connectivity. The NH 31A is the single highway connecting
Gangtok with Siliguri. There is no airport, no railway line and the inter-state connectivity is far
sort of the global standard. Quality of accommodation, facilities & services beyond urban areas,
limited community participation and poor availability of skilled human resources are other
problems. As if all this was not enough, the archaic inner line permit and other restrictions only
reduce the attractiveness of the state as the first choice.
Opportunities: Despite all the limitation that threaten to mar the prospect of Sikkims
emergence as an international destination, the Himalayan state has all the potential to emerge as
a sought after tourist destination. Be it for events, conventions, exhibitions, rural/village tourism;
its rich and diverse heritage, culture and civilisation, mountains and valleys along with religious
circuits give it an ideal set up to emerge as a pilgrimage, adventure, wetland and wellness
destination. Its natural landscape is suitable for the film industry as well.
Threats: The failure to effectively resolve the constraints/weaknesses identified both on the part
of the Central and the State Governments is what poses the greatest threat to Sikkim. Given its
topography (82% of forest area is under forest. The Tourism Ministry, GOI even declared
Sikkim as Eco-Tourism Destination) and context there is a great need to involve the
communities in decision-making process. This will at least ensure sustainable and eco-friendly
growth of rural areas and natural tourism sites. Not to deny that the state needs to resist the ever
increasing competition in the tourism sector, often at the cost of environment and the community
