Business and Economy

This country is considered to be one of the world's poorest countries, Comoros is made up of three islands that have virtually no or one can say very inadequate transportation links, a young and rapidly increasing population that seems to be the only striking feature here in this country and apart from it being very poor in its resources. The low educational level of the labor force contributes to a subsistence level of economic activity, high unemployment, and this acts as a vicarious circle as it leads to poverty and then again unemployment leading to no money to sustain, a heavy dependence on foreign grants and technical assistance. Agriculture, including fishing, hunting, and forestry, contributes 40% to GDP, employs 80% of the labor force, and provides most of the exports.

Major Cities

The major cities in Comoros are Domoni,Fomboni,Mitsamiouli,Moroni,Mutsamudu.
