Primary sector

The primary sector which - in this case - comprises agriculture and forestry only accounts for a small part of total employment in the Nordic Region. However, the sector indirectly forms the basis for a considerable part of production and employment. This is partly due to the fact that products from agriculture and forestry are used as raw materials in manufacturing in other industries. And partly due to the fact that the capital-intensive primary sector requires many goods and services from other sectors, for example agricultural machinery, wood-cutting equipment etc., as well as maintenance and services incidental to this machinery and equipment.
