The importance of manufacturing in the economy of Liberia and other countries is measured as the value added of manufacturing as percent of GDP. Manufacturing is part of the industrial sector of the economy.
Definition: Manufacturing refers to industries belonging to ISIC divisions 15-37. Value added is the net output of a sector after adding up all outputs and subtracting intermediate inputs. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or depletion and degradation of natural resources. The origin of value added is determined by the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), revision 3.
