Agriculture and fishing constitute the main economic items in the country. The returns from the fisheries export and the hunting licenses granted to foreigners for fishing are the most important sources of income in the country.
The public sector is the dominant power in the country's economy. There is very little economic activity except fishing. Although the foreign exchange income was another important source of income, the global economic crisis in 2008 and 2008 also saw a contraction in revenues from this source.
