Approximately 15,000 people in Cyprus work in the agricultural, forestry, and fishing industries, according to the European Union’s statistical agency Eurostat.

The figures, which were recorded in 2020, showed that the number corresponds to 3.4 per cent of Cyprus’ total workforce. This figure is lower than the overall figure for the EU, which stands at 4.5 per cent.

Of those workers, around 14,000 – 3.2 per cent of the workforce – work specifically in the agriculture sector.

The highest rates of employment within the three sectors in the EU were found in the Romanian regions of Vaslui and Neamt, where 61.7 per cent and 51.4 per cent of the respective populations work in either agriculture, forestry, or fishing.
