Suriname Agriculture and Fishing Overview


Agriculture and fishing

The importance of agriculture has diminished in recent years. It now forms a fairly small part of the economy and employs only about one in ten surinames.

  • CountryAAH: Comprehensive import regulations of Suriname. Covers import prohibitions and special documentation requirements for a list of prohibited items.

Agriculture occurs almost exclusively along the coast. Less than one percent of the land area is cultivated. The most important crop is rice grown on at least half of the agricultural land. Then comes bananas. Both rice and bananas are also exported. The recovery of timber is still relatively modest (compare Natural Resources and Energy). On the coast there are facilities for fish and shrimp cultivation. For Suriname defense and foreign policy, please check themotorcyclers.
