Despite its small size, Equatorial Guinea is the third largest oil exporter in sub-Saharan Africa. The country has vast resource of gas and timber but does not manufacture anything. The petroleum sector accounted for 85 percent of GDP and more than 94 percent of exports. Other sectors are construction (7 percent of GDP in 2015), agriculture, forestry and fisheries (2 percent of GDP), and trade (1.6 percent). In terms of GDP per capita it is one of the world's richest countries. But due to government mismanagement and widespread corruption oil revenues are distributed unevenly and most of the population lives on little more than $1 a day. In recent years, the government has embarked on public investment program like building highways and its new capital. However, investments in education, agriculture and manufacturing industry seem to be forgotten.
