The state contributes around 90% of the national output of rock phosphate, 100% of natural gypsum and 10% of the natural limestone. Rajasthan is an archaeologists dream come true with its forts and palaces, the heritage buildings but the tourism sector hardly gets the attention it deserves.

Despite initial problems Rajasthan is now truly and surely ambling on its way to turn into an IT hub. Even though Rajasthan has been a slow starter in the high tech arena it is getting support from many famous companies like Wipro, Patni Computersetc.

More than the domestic tourists it is the, foreign tourists who, are the darlings of the jewelers. The craft sector is witnessing a new breed of entrepreneurs who are integrating their ventures in tune with global trends.
