Comoros strengths are trading which they are very good at, examples are perfumes and spices. Another strength is can sell a lot of fabric to help them out economically. There are many weaknesses of this country. There farming is one because they live of the food that they grow called subsistence farming. They also have poor education were most of the teachers themselves are not highly educated, very few of them ever went to college. Another weakness is industry accounts for only 4 percent of gross national product and the one of the largest weakness they have is they don't have a lot of fresh water.


The main country that helps Comoros is France because they try to help with there health services. The World Bank also helps fund projects that would improve the lack of electricity and health care of the public. Both also help to improve education within the country.


The reason why Comoros is still a LDC is because they usually have to delay projects because of constant storms and that children spend most of their time farming or doing work than focusing on their studies.


Economic Strategies

The economic strategies that will improve Comoros would be giving supplies to them to improve their infrastructure and improving the education problems within the country.

Comoros has the ability to become economically stable epically if they improve their health care and education within the country so they can start focusing on job creating efforts.
