More about Honduras
- ALLCOUNTRYLIST: Overview of major industries in Honduras, including mining, construction, transportation, tourism, and foreign trade.
The country, which with a per capita GDP of US $ 1,842 (2008) and a GDP of US $ 14,126 million is among the poorest in the Isthmian area (it is the least endowed with resources and technologies among the countries of Central America), presents an economic situation characterized by a general backwardness, which dates back to the colonial period but which has not benefited from the achievement of independence. This derives from the heavy interference of some foreign companies, in particular the United Fruit Company (later United Brands), which from the beginning of the century XX introduced well-organized commercial plantations of bananas, coffee, letona (fiber obtained from agave), sugar cane and cotton, tobacco, oil palms, fruit trees, while very little was done to strengthen agriculture for internal consumption, so it is still necessary to resort to substantial imports of food. In 1975 an attempt was made at land reform aimed at a more equitable distribution of land to peasants, which was practically nullified by the American landowners and multinationals. Even the industrial sector is absolutely inadequate for most of the country’s requests: the only development pole is San Pedro Sula, which since 1975 has enjoyed a free zone in the nearby center of Puerto Cortés. While the economy suffered from the fluctuation of international prices of export and still proved to be dependent on external resources to pursue primary sector development projects (irrigation and agrarian reform), the growth of gross domestic product in the 1980s was canceled out by population growth. At the same time, the foreign debt grew, requiring for its renegotiation the adoption of an austerity policy that increased the number of unemployed and accentuated dependence on international aid. The country’s economy was devastated in 1994 by a dramatic energy crisis due to drought, which hit the country and forced it to import electricity for about 1 billion dollars. In the following years, the economic recovery was again slowed down by other natural disasters (such as floods due to Hurricane Floyd in 1999). In 2000, strong social tensions were caused by the refusal to raise minimum wages. The government has recently reduced state spending by attempting to rebalance the trade balance and bring the country out of the recession period that began in 1994. In 2004 it was concluded with the IMF an agreement providing for an intervention plan; in 2005 the member countries of the IMF and the World Bank canceled the foreign debt of Honduras (over 4200 million US $). Unemployment is very high (half of the active population) and the level of corruption is high. The country survives thanks to international aid and huge remittances from immigrants.

Agriculture is still the basis of the Honduran economy, participating for 13.1% (2008) in the formation of the GDP. It affects more than a third of the active population, although the arable land occupies just 12.8% of the territorial surface and is only minimally irrigated; they are mostly very poor peasants, who grow maize and other cereals, cassava, beans, etc. on small plots, which barely cover the needs of the country. What makes it is plantation agriculture, destined for export and in the hands of US multinationals, which mainly supplies bananas (Honduras is one of the main producers in the world) and coffee (of which it is the ninth world producer), then tobacco, cotton, sugar cane, coconut and oil palms, citrus and pineapple. The trend of agriculture is highly dependent on climatic conditions and the fluctuation of prices on international markets. Forest exploitation for timber (mahogany, cedar, pine, etc.) has a certain importance. Livestock breeding is also not very productive (cattle prevail). Fishing, although poorly developed, contributes to exports (especially shrimp).
