Economy. In recent years, Taiwan’s economic growth has slowed from its previous rapid pace of the 1980s, but it has, nevertheless, remained robust. The average annual GDP growth rate for 1990-2000 was 6.42 percent, and as a result of this robust growth, per capita income rose from US$8,111 in 1990 to US$14,216 in 2000. The economy experienced a first-ever recession in 2001, with an economic growth rate estimated at -2.0% (see Table 2). Alongside the slow-down of economic growth, income distribution is worsening. In 2002, the average income of the top-quintile (20%) of households was 5.55 times that of the bottom quintile, a ratio much higher than past norms, although still lower than most industrial countries. The unemployment rate was also at a historically high level, averaging 4.57% in 2001. TABLE 2 Source: Monthly Bulletin of Labor Statistics, Council of Labor Affairs, 2000. There was a dramatic reorganization of the structure of the economy in the 1990s; in particular, the mainstay of economic activities shifted from the manufacturing sector to the services sector. Manufacturing accounted for 33.31 percent of GDP in 1990, but the share declined steadily in the 1990s, settling at 26.33 percent in 2000 (see Table 3). In its place, the GDP share accounted for by service output has increased to 49.86 percent from the 41.76 percent share in 1990. Amongst the various service sectors, retail trade and finance have contributed most to this expansion.TABLE 3Distribution of GDP by industry, percent (%) Agriculture Manufacturing Construction Services Source: Monthly Statistics of the Republic of China, Taiwan. Taiwan has been a major producer of computer hardware, but not a major consumer of computer-related services; nevertheless, structural changes in the 1990s pushed Taiwan’s economy toward greater consumption of such services. As shown in Table 4, Taiwan producedU.S. $22,157 million worth of IT hardware in 2000, ranking it fifth in the world in terms of IT output, just behind the U.S., Japan, Singapore and China. In contrast, the number of PCs owned in Taiwan is relatively small, and estimated at 224.65 pieces per thousand people. The number is dwarfed by 344.52 in Australia or 483.11 per thousand in Singapore. Lack of purpose has discouraged households from owning PCs, despite the fact that PC prices are relatively low in Taiwan. This suggests that Taiwan has not taken full advantage of ICT to become an “information society”. But Internet diffusion has promoted PC o...
Economy. Tourism, hospitality and agriculture are the key industries in the area, providing some local employment.

Economy. Consisting largely of tropical forest, Cabinda produces hardwoods, coffee, cocoa, crude rubber and palm oil. The product for which it is best known, however, is its oil. Conservative estimates are that Cabinda accounts for close to 60% of Angola’s oil production, estimated at approximately 900,000 barrels per day (140,000 m3/d), and it is estimated that oil exports from the province are worth the equivalent of US$100,000 per annum for every Cabindan. Yet, it remains one of the poorest provinces in Angola. An agreement in 1996 between the national and provincial governments stipulated that 10% of Cabinda’s taxes on oil revenues should be given back to the province, but Cabindans often feel that these revenues are not benefiting the population as a whole, largely because of corruption. The private sector, particularly the oil industry, has both affected and been affected by the secessionist conflict. During the early days of Cabinda's struggle, the oil companies were perceived to be sympathetic to, if not supportive of, Cabinda’s self-determination cause. The strategy used by the separatists to gain international attention, was most evident in 1999 and 2000. During 1999, FLEC-R kidnapped four foreign workers (two Portuguese and two French citizens), but released them after several months, having failed to attract the attention of the international community. FLEC-FAC also increased its activities during 2000 with the more widely publicized kidnapping of three Portuguese workers employed by a construction company, while FLEC-R kidnapped another five Portuguese civilians. These hostages were not freed until June 2001, following the diplomatic intervention of the governments of Gabon and Congo Brazzaville. Secessionism
