GDP per capita and share of agriculture in GDP

Agriculture has played a central role in the ECCU economies. In countries such as Dominica , St. Vincent & the Grenadines, and Grenada agriculture is still an important sector in the economy. It contributes between 17 % and 7 % of GDP but has a significantly larger share of employment. Economic growth is the most powerful instrument for reducing poverty and undernutrition, and for improving the quality of life in developing countries.
