Industry

Agriculture, forestry and fisheries contributed a negligible 0.5% to Trinidad and Tobago’s GDP in 2010, with 10.5% of land given over to agricultural use and, in 2008, 3.8% of people employed in the industry. The country’s main agricultural crops are cocoa, rice, citrus, coffee, vegetables and poultry. Citrus fruits and tomatoes are the most lucrative in the sector and are important export products along with cocoa, sugar, coffee and cut flowers. The government moved to downsize sugar production in the budget year 2004/05 because of the sector’s lack of profitability. The Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Marine Resources oversees agricultural development in the country.
