Mining and agriculture have long been the backbone of the Zimbabwean economy. However, since the l960’s the manufacturing sector has greatly increased in importance and it is now the sector that contributes most to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Between 1970 and 1980 manufacturing contribution to the GDP averaged about 25 percent. Agriculture has been the second largest contributor to the GDP. The chief characteristics of the manufacturing industry are; first, the high degree of concentration of output in the hands of a relatively small number of producers and second, its spatial concentration in Harare and to a lesser extent in Bulawayo.
