Cabo Verde consists of Cape Verde islands of the size 15 on the Atlantic Ocean of 500km of offings of Senegal. There are many alpine clubs on volcanic semicircle-like islands. It became independent of Portugal in 1975. Agriculture is growing a banana, sugarcane, coffee, the orange, etc. using a volcano plateau or a valley. However, since there is little precipitation, it is attacked in many cases by the drought, and 80% of food is dependent on import. For this reason, a fishing is important, and fish and shellfishes, such as a tuna and a shrimp, and the processed goods of those are important food, and are also exports. In addition, taking advantage of the geographical advantage on the Atlantic Ocean, service is offered as a route, an air route, deep-sea fishing, and a communicative relay base and a communicative supply base.
