Sao Tome and Principe’s economy depend on an agricultural economy. The cocoa production lies on the top of the list. In fact, the economic growth has been wholly driven by cocoa, with strong exports. Cocoa has dramatically increased the local and international investments which propelled the country as one of the main cocoa destinations. However, the oil industry is slowly become an important revenue source accounting around 40% of the country’s income. The tourism industry has also increased the country’s situation. While inciting a more diverse tourism market, Sao Tome and Principe is today able to protect their natural heritages. The main issue is the slow increase in poverty which remains a concern.
