Economy

Somalia was declared as a least developed country by the United Nations with an informal economy who’s highly dependent on the subsistence farming and agriculture. The Agricultural sector is however the most important industry of the country as it accounts as one of the major parts of the exports and of the GDP.  The industrial sector is majorly about the processed of agricultural products and machineries and the telecommunications sector has also its importance; Somalia offers some wireless services in some big cities and is one of the cheapest mobile rates of the world. The local supermarkets and the hotels which still work despite the current wars help the country to fight against poverty.
