The economy of Mozambique is mostly built around agriculture, accumulating up to 44% of the country's GDP while employing 80% its population. It suffered major blows in the 1980s, when a civil war, the emigration of portuguese skilled personnel and multiple droughts weakened the economical structure. Mozambique also holds a few natural resources, most notably iron, bauxite, natural gasoline and coal. The government is currently trying to improve the country's investment potential.
