Although Sierra Leone is one of the most mineral-rich countries in West Africa and has relatively good natural conditions for agriculture, the economic situation has steadily deteriorated since the 1970s. The civil war (1991–2002), which was about dominance over the rich diamond deposits as well as unequal development and institutionalized corruption, further exacerbated this situation. Even after the end of the civil war, the country’s economy is based on diamond exports. The economy is gradually recovering, but given the low starting level, economic growth is nowhere near enough to eradicate the country’s huge development deficits and poverty. The number of unemployed is very high. The inflation rate is (2014) 7.3%. Despite concessions from the creditors, the foreign debt is (2012) US $ 971 million. That Gross national income (GNI) is (2017) US $ 510 per resident.
Foreign trade: The trade balance is chronically in deficit (import value 2013: 1.46 billion US $, export value 1.39 billion US $). The most important export products are diamonds, rutile and bauxite as well as cocoa and coffee. The main customer countries are Belgium, Romania, the Netherlands, China, the USA, Turkey and Great Britain. Most of the imports, especially machinery, oil, consumer and capital goods, come from China, South Africa, Great Britain and the USA.
The dominant economic sector is agriculture, in which (2014) around 60% of the labor force generated 62% of the gross domestic product (GDP). Smallholder subsistence farming with shifting cultivation is widespread, with 56.8% of the country’s area being used for agriculture, almost half of which is used for arable farming and the rest as pasture. The cultivation of rice, as swamp rice in the coastal plain and as mountain rice in the interior of the country, is of great importance. Other important products are cassava, corn and various vegetables. The growing area of the export goods cocoa and coffee is located in the southeast on the border with Liberia. Cattle breeding is only practiced in the savannahs in the north, mostly against the tsetse fly largely resistant Ndama cattle. A significant amount of food (especially cereals) has to be imported.
Forestry: Between Kenema in the southeast (Kambui Hills) and the Liberian border (Genema Hills) stretch the richest forest in the country (about 37.2% of the national territory). 98% of the logging is used as firewood, the rest as industrial timber.
Fisheries: Fisheries are of great importance, especially for feeding the population, and less for the export economy. However, overfishing in coastal waters and the continental reef by unregistered foreign vessels leads to a reduction in fish stocks.
The country is rich in mineral resources (including diamonds, gold, iron ore, bauxite and the titanium ore rutile). The productivity of mining, the country’s most important source of foreign exchange, was severely affected by the civil war. The diamond extraction takes place both industrially (in two opencast mines in the east of the country) and by numerous private prospectors. Sierra Leone is believed to have one of the world’s largest reserves of rutile, a mineral that, among other things, contains occurs in coastal sands. Bauxite is mined in the Mokanji Hills in the southwest, on the Sierra Leone peninsula and at Port Loko. The mining of iron ore has resumed. The mining companies are mostly foreign owned.
Manufacturing is underdeveloped and geared towards the production of consumer goods for the domestic market. Noteworthy are a brewery, wood processing, production of cement and building materials, textiles, paints, confectionery, soap and beverages as well as small-scale handicrafts in rural areas. The most important industrial location is Freetown.
In principle, Sierra Leone has good natural prerequisites for a tourism industry, which, however, have so far not been able to be used due to the destruction during the war and a lack of infrastructure.
