Food-processing being one of them, with many investors establishing rice and nuts processing plants. More recently, a major sugar refinery was launched.

Guinea-Bissau is heavily reliant on agriculture, both subsistence and on a larger scale. The industry accounts for over half the country’s GDP. It makes up the primary income of over ¾ of the population.
Cashew is the most significant crop in the country. It is used for local consumption and commercial export. The second most important sector is manufacturing. Fishing and forestry are now becoming more significant and hold high potential.
