Despite its rich natural resources and a significant young population, Assam has yet to fully realize its growth potential. The state's economy remains heavily reliant on low value-added, natural resource-based products and suffers from weak integration into global and regional value chains.

Additionally, Assam is vulnerable to natural hazards, which are expected to worsen due to climate change. Limited growth opportunities have led to significant out-migration for jobs and education, further aggravating the skills shortage in the state.

The creation of ASU is expected to address these challenges by providing advanced skills education and training, thereby enhancing the local workforce and fostering economic development in Assam.
