Abstract: Abstract Arising partly from the geographical and climatic differences there are substantial variations between regions in their reliance upon both agriculture and industry; further disaggregation also reveals that the industrial structure within each region shows little commonality. The fact that oil resources are concentrated in the Eastern region dictates the breakdown between the oil and non-oil sectors by region. This is reflected in regional gross domestic product, which indicates that ninety per cent of value-added in the Eastern region resulted from the oil sector in 1396/7; less than one per cent of value-added in each of the other regions came from the oil sector.1 Although these proportions have now changed the Eastern Province still remains heavily dependent upon oil production in its value-added contribution.
