The government’s economic development policy emphasizes the expansion of non-oil sectors, one being the agriculture and fisheries sector. A great example being in the year 2013, in spite a marginal dip from 9% in 2012 to 8.6% in 2013 the contribution made by the agriculture and fisheries sector to the national economy rose slightly over the period from 1.3% of GDP in 2013 compared with 1.2% the previous year.
