|This sector is also called the agriculture and related sector as most of the natural products are obtained from agriculture, dairy, fishing and forestry.||As manufacturing and processing of raw materials takes place in this sector, this sector is also known as the industrial sector.|
|These products formthe base for the secondary sector.||The finished products of this sector directly reach the consumers.|
