The given line graph depicts fluctuations in the pattern of exports in a particular country over a decade from 2000.
Overall, there was a much visible growth of industrial exports between 2000 and 2010, whereas the other sectors witnessed a setback.
In 2000, agricultural exports had a clear upper hand over the others. When the country exported approximately 4.3 metric tons of agricultural goods , industrial and other exports stood far behind, with around 2.4 and 2 metric tons respectively. The year 2003 was the best for the country in case of its agricultural and other products’ exports (6 and 5 metric tons). Despite an initial drop of about 0.5 metric tons in 2002, the industrial exports made a consistent progress during the rest of the period, which became sharper, and eventually hit a peak of about 8 metric tons in 2010.
On the other hand, after 2003, exports from the non-industrial sectors started declining, of which the agricultural sector suffered more severely. By 2010, the agrarian sector could export just only over a metric ton, whereas exports from other sectors recorded exactly 2 metric tons.
