Burkina Faso's Economy
Agriculture represents 32% of Burkina Faso's gross domestic product and occupies 80% of the working population. This consists mostly of livestock but also, especially in the south and southwest, of growing sorghum, millet, maize, peanuts, rice, and cotton. Cotton is the country’s most important export, while gold exports have gained importance in recent years.
