Section III Secondary Industries Manufacturing Energy & Minerals Secondary Industries
Manufacturing Make an important contribution to the national economy; The largest sub-sectors are food, beverages and tobacco, machinery and equipment; Building new homes is significant, residential construction is 60%; CER and NAFTA.
Energy and Minerals Has significant natural energy resources, with good reserves of coal, natural gas and oil, extensive geothermal fields; After 1973, oil and gas exploration was increased and energy conservation programs developed and promoted.
Section IV Tertiary Industries Transport & Communication Tourism Trade
By air 17% of exports by value, Auckland Negative aspect: a rapid increase in unemployment 1 Important; 99% of exports; Auckland Shipping Transport 1 No longer the central role; the major haulers of long-distance freight Railway Car The most popular form; 73% of NZers drove to work.

III. Explaining the following in English. 1. Primary Industries The primary sector of the economy involves changing natural resources into primary products. Most products from this sector are considered raw materials for other industries. Major businesses in this sector include agriculture, agribusiness, fishing, forestry and all mining and quarrying industries.
2. Secondary Industries This sector generally takes the output of the primary sector and manufactures finished goods or where they are suitable for use by other businesses, for export, or sale to domestic consumers. This sector is often divided into light industry and heavy industry.
3. Kiwifruit The kiwifruit, often shortened to kiwi in many parts of the world, is the edible berry. It has a fibrous, dull brown-green skin and bright green or golden flesh with rows of tiny, black, edible seeds. The fruit has a soft texture and a unique flavor, and today is a commercial crop in several countries, mainly in Italy, New Zealand and Chile.
4. Tertiary Industries The tertiary sector of the economy (also known as the service sector or the service industry) consists of the "soft" parts of the economy, i.e. activities where people offer their knowledge and time to improve productivity, performance, potential, and sustainability. The basic characteristic of this sector is the production of services instead of end products.
5. Transport Transport or transportation is the movement of people and goods from one location to another. Modes of transport include air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline, and space. Transport plays an important part in economic growth and globalization, but most types cause air pollution and use large amounts of land.
6. fishery A fishery is an entity engaged in raising and/or harvesting fish. A fishery may involve the capture of wild fish or raising fish through fish farming or aquaculture. Directly or indirectly, the livelihood of over 500 million people in developing countries depends on fisheries and aquaculture.
