Lanzarote’s economy is built around tourism and the services it engenders. Put together, these generate around 80% of the economic activity of the island. Construction is the second largest part of the economy. Despite the fact that the primary sector (especially agriculture) has a fairly low impact on the island’s GDP, it remains an extremely important activity. The creative growing systems used by islanders to counteract the arid conditions not only generate agricultural production (grapes, onions, sweet potatoes or yams), but they have also become one of the most important elements of Lanzarote’s unique landscape.
