Industries and Economics

Industries and Economies in the Tropics

The one hundred and twenty-two nations of the tropics produce around 20% of the world GDP and continue to experience above world average growth in GDP. TropLinks, an Australian-based not-for-profit network of research and industry groups, has estimated that by 2025 the size of the economies of the tropical world will exceed $US40 trillion.
