Agriculture, forestry and fishery

The primary sector comprising agriculture, forestry and fishery only accounts for a small part of total employment in the Nordic countries: from 2.1 per cent of employment in Sweden to 5.9 per cent of employment in Iceland. 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, forestry and fishery are used as raw materials in manufacturing and 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, fishing vessels etc., as well as maintenance and services incidental to this machinery and equipment.
