In 1970, Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan) had an economy largely based on agriculture. A high proportion of the population worked in farming either to produce crops for self-sufficiency or to sell in local markets. Secondary manufacturing activities were relatively unimportant and the tertiary sector was also small as incomes were very low and people had little spare cash to spend on 'services'. By 2011 , Bangladesh had undergone significant changes. Although 40 per cent of the workforce still works in agriculture, production of goods such as jute, tobacco and food has fallen in relative terms. Manufacturing industries - notably food processing and clothing - have expanded rapidly. Tertiary services such as telecommunications, transport and finance now contribute approximately half of total national output.
Refer to the case study above. Identify and explain two possible reasons why the relative importance of primary output has fallen.
