8 million people for 112.000 km² gives a low density of population, which leaves the lands for the country’s significant natural resources such as minerals (gold, silver copper), timber, coffee, sugar cane. The economy is based mostly on agriculture, accounting for 22% of the GDP. The main exports are coffee, bananas and shrimps. However, the Honduran economy has diversified in recent decades and now has a strong export-processing (maquila) industry, primarily focused on assembling textile and apparel goods for re-export to the United States, as well as automobile wiring harnesses and similar products.
