three groups of economic activities

primary, secondary and tertiary.

1

Tertiary

Tertiary economic activities involve the provision of services and facilities. In poor countries, very few people work in services. This is because people are too poor to buy services that other people provide.
As a country becomes wealthy, people demand personal services such as hair dressing, financial services such as banking and educational services for their children.
