4. Notes • Economic activities are classified into three main sectors: primary, secondary and tertiary. • The primary sector includes the activities based on the extraction of goods and resources from the environment: agriculture, stock breeding, hunting, forestry, fishing and mining. Primary activities are carried out in rural, marine and forest areas, which are usually far from the cities. • The secondary sector includes the economic activities which transform the goods and resources extracted from the environment (raw materials) into processed products. Construction and industry are the main activities in this sector. Industries are usually located in cities and nearby areas. • The tertiary sector includes activities which provide services of all kind: trade, transport, tourism, health, communication, education, finance or culture.
5. The primary sector The primary sector consists of economic activities that obtain resources from nature, such as agriculture, stockbreeding, fishing, forest exploitation, and mining. It is called primary since its activities give food and other basic resources. Agriculture and stockbreeding were born in the Neolithic revolution (7000 BC). Until then, human beings had been hunters and gatherers, not producers. Agriculture was possible when humans sedentarised. Animals gave humans food (meat, milk, eggs...) and hides. Besides they were used for agriculture and transportation.
6. The secondary sector • This sector consists of construction, energy production, and industry. Construction involves buildings and infrastructure. It requires many raw materials and workforce. Energy production transforms fuel into forms of energy, such as heat or electricity. Large facilities are needed in order to accomplish that process and there are several ways to produce energy. Industry transforms raw materials into finished (for direct consumption) or semi-finished (used as materials in other industrial processes) products.
7. The tertiary sector • The tertiary sector or services refers to activities that do not produce any goods but offer services, such as transport, trade, tourism, health, education, administration, and cultural activities. • In the developed countries most of the workers belong to this sector (circa 70%) and it has the biggest contribution to the national economy; hence it is a service or terciarised economy.
