Main Industry Sectors

The agricultural sector is the main pillar of the Pakistani economy. It contributes around 22% to the GDP and employs approximately 42% of the active population. Wheat, rice, cotton, sugarcane, fruits, vegetables and tobacco are the chief crops. Cattle livestock farming is also very important. Pakistan is the 4th largest cotton producer in the world and has abundant natural resources, mainly copper, oil and gas.

The industrial sector contributes around 25% to the GDP. The major industries are textile production (the largest source of  foreign exchange revenue), oil refining, metal processing, and the production of cement and fertilizers. Maritime transport is also a significant activity.

The tertiary sector contributes to around half of the GDP.  Money transfers from Pakistanis working abroad create a considerable godsend financial income for the country.
