More about Eritrea

  • ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Eritrea, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.

Business

Eritrea is one of the poorest countries on earth. Thirty years of war, corruption and drought have led to the collapse of the once thriving economy and catastrophic crop failures. After the end of the war in 1991, more than 80% of the population was dependent on international aid. The military border disputes with neighboring countries that followed, rigid political structures and state dirigism led to the hesitant willingness of the western industrialized countries to financially support the reconstruction of Eritrea.

Since the government does not publish economic data, the gross national income (GNI) per resident (2014) is estimated at US $ 680. Agriculture generates around 14.5%, industry and construction 22.4% and the service sector 63.0% of GDP. The main sources of income in the country are remittances from foreign nationals and exports of mining products. Economic growth is estimated at 3.7% for 2016. The external debt is (2017) US $ 1.3 billion.

Foreign trade: The country’s foreign trade balance is almost balanced (estimated import value 2016: US $ 286.3 million, export value: US $ 286.1 million). Above all, mining products (gold, silver, copper; 96% of total exports) are exported, along with coffee, hides, hides, leather and oil products as well as seafood, textiles and shoes. The most important trading partners are China, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and India.

Agriculture

About 60% of the workforce work in agriculture, which is mainly operated for their own use. The most important crops are teff (a type of millet), barley, tubers, legumes, vegetables and oil fruits as well as coffee and cotton. The south-east belongs to the semi-desert Afar depression and is only used by nomadic farming (sheep, goats, cattle, camels); the extent of the previously important livestock industry in the south-west of the country has declined sharply as a direct result of the military conflict. Since in some years there is almost no precipitation, the harvest quantities are subject to considerable fluctuations, which repeatedly leads to famine.

Fisheries: Eritrea has rich fishing grounds that are increasingly being fished by foreign fleets. Shrimps, lobsters and crabs from aquaculture are increasingly being exported.

Natural resources

The country has considerable reserves of raw materials (including gold, silver, copper, zinc), which are mined by international corporations (mainly from Canada and China). In addition, Eritrea has barite, feldspar, kaolin, potash, salt, gypsum, granite and asbestos deposits as well as marble of high quality. The oil and gas explorations on the Eritrean coast have so far been unsuccessful.

Industry

Before independence, today’s capital Asmara was, along with Addis Ababa, the industrial center of Ethiopia. The glass, cement, shoe and canning industries traditionally located here, as well as a brewery, have been rebuilt. The ruling party PFDJ has taken over some of the most productive plants and dominates, among other things. the textile sector. A diverse handicraft sector developed again in the country.

Tourism

Wars, inadequate supplies and a lack of infrastructure make it impossible to develop commercial tourism in the country. The majority of the visitors (2011: 107,000) are foreigners, along with a few travelers from western industrialized countries. Check ezinesports to see Types of Travel in Africa.

Transportation

During the civil war, the only railway line between Akordat (via Asmara) and the port city of Massaua was destroyed (parts of the line reopened); The repair of the road link between Asmara and Massaua, which has also been damaged (a total of 4,000 km, around 900 km of which is paved), has top priority. Assab is the second major port city next to Massaua. The international airport is located near the capital Asmara.
