Economic activities are divided into four sectors and these sectors are as follows: Primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary. These activities come from the way we run our nation’s economy – from the extraction of raw materials to getting revenues from services offered. The primary sector is the part wherein we make use of our natural resources. This includes different businesses such as agriculture, mining, fishing, hunting and forestry. The secondary sector is the part wherein raw materials are manufactured into food or things which we can use in our daily lives.
This includes automobile production, engineering industries, energy utilities and construction. The tertiary sector is wherein manufactured food or goods are sold for public consumption. This includes wholesale stores, transportation, restaurants, banks, law services and hospitals. Quaternary sector is the part wherein certain things are needed to be handled by technically-inclined people. This includes information technology, designing and research and development.
