The economy of Seychelles is based on fishing, tourism, the processing of coconuts and vanilla, coir (coconut fiber) rope, boat building, printing, furniture and beverages. Agricultural products include cinnamon, sweet potatoes, cassava (tapioca), bananas, poultry and tuna. The public sector, comprising the government and state-owned enterprises, dominates the economy in terms of employment and gross revenue. Tourism is one of the most important sectors of the economy. Employment, foreign earnings, construction, banking, and commerce are all dominated by tourism-related industries. In addition to the now booming tourism and building/real estate markets, Seychelles has renewed its commitment to developing its financial services sector including accounting for approximately 16.6% (2000) of GDP. (Source: Wikipedia) The rapidly expanding financial sector, linked to the establishment of the Seychelles International Business Authority and a suite of progressive laws facilitating the establishment of offshore structures and encouraging inward investment, is now a significant element of the economy.
