There are three economic generators for AMS which boost the GDP per capita up to US$ 4.308 (increase more than 3 times since 2000) are agriculture (10%), manufacturing (36.8%), and services (50.9%). Manufacturing has been playing important role for the AMS international merchandise trades for export and import. it increases in 2017 by reaching to US$ 2.573 billion. In respond to the issue of better life, United Nation (UN) designed a grand agenda of Sustainable Development 2030.
