Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world with over 70 percent of population living below the poverty line. Madagascar’s economy depends on agriculture (shrimps, spices, coffee, cacao, cotton, tobacco are the most important products), ecotourism and mining (graphite, chromie). After years of stable growth, the country faced a military coup in 2009. As a result, the economic activity slowed down substantially, tourism revenues dropped and financial aid for the country was halted. Yet, as democracy and order return to Madagascar, tourism and foreign direct investments are recovering and increasing expectations of fast recovery.
