Economy

An almost desert territory, of volcanic origin, devoid of natural resources, Djibouti has an extremely stunted economy dominated by the tertiary sector (this sector in 2005 contributed 79.3% to GDP). The port of Djibouti, the maritime outlet of the railway to Addis Ababa (of which approximately 106 km are in Djibouti territory) is one of the main sources of currency income for the country since its establishment as a free port (1945). The port was one of the main in the world in the 1960s, but following the Arab-Israeli war of 1967 its traffic was reduced by approx. two-thirds. At the beginning of the 2000s it had to face competition from other important ports in the area such as Gidda, Aden, Assab and Mombasa. The country’s economic situation (GDP US $ 982 million and GDP per capita US $ 1,252 in 2007) also deeply depends on political events (the civil war) and social ones (demobilization of soldiers employed in the war and the presence of Ethiopian and Somali refugees on its territory). Djibouti largely depends on international aid, especially from France, of which it also hosts a strategic military base. § Agriculture, subsistence, is limited to the coast and small inland oases (vegetables, fruit and oasis crops) and the breeding of livestock (especially sheep and goats), is practiced by nomadic shepherds. The primary sector, despite the torrid climate and the scarcity of arable land, occupies more than half of the population. § The almost non-existent industry is limited to small factories for the production of beverages, modest shoe factories, to artisanal food companies, all concentrated in the capital area. § As far as raw materials are concerned, Djibouti has only modest deposits of manganese, copper and salt (in Lake Assal). § The only relevant export goods are livestock, hides and skins, while Djibouti is forced to import, in addition to all sorts of industrial products (fabrics, machinery, vehicles, etc.), large quantities of foodstuffs; the trade deficit is high. § As regards the communication routes, in addition to the aforementioned railway, Djibouti has approx. 3000 km of roads, only half of which are passable all year round (only 400 km are asphalted), as well as the international airport of Djibouti. § As far as raw materials are concerned, Djibouti has only modest deposits of manganese, copper and salt (in Lake Assal). § The only relevant export goods are livestock, hides and skins, while Djibouti is forced to import, in addition to all sorts of industrial products (fabrics, machinery, vehicles, etc.), large quantities of foodstuffs; the trade deficit is high. § As regards the communication routes, in addition to the aforementioned railway, Djibouti has approx. 3000 km of roads, only half of which are passable all year round (only 400 km are asphalted), as well as the international airport of Djibouti. § As far as raw materials are concerned, Djibouti has only modest deposits of manganese, copper and salt (in Lake Assal). § The only relevant export goods are livestock, hides and skins, while Djibouti is forced to import, in addition to all sorts of industrial products (fabrics, machinery, vehicles, etc.), large quantities of foodstuffs; the trade deficit is high. § As regards the communication routes, in addition to the aforementioned railway, Djibouti has approx. 3000 km of roads, only half of which are passable all year round (only 400 km are asphalted), as well as the international airport of Djibouti. in addition to all sorts of industrial products (fabrics, machinery, vehicles, etc.), large quantities of foodstuffs; the trade deficit is high. § As regards the communication routes, in addition to the aforementioned railway, Djibouti has approx. 3000 km of roads, only half of which are passable all year round (only 400 km are asphalted), as well as the international airport of Djibouti. in addition to all sorts of industrial products (fabrics, machinery, vehicles, etc.), large quantities of foodstuffs; the trade deficit is high. § As regards the communication routes, in addition to the aforementioned railway, Djibouti has approx. 3000 km of roads, only half of which are passable all year round (only 400 km are asphalted), as well as the international airport of Djibouti.
