Introduction
1.1 Definitions

“Geography is the study of the world, its people and the interactions between the two”- said by Mr. Bowerman a famous geologist.

“Economic Geography is concerned with the spatial organization and distribution of the economic activities, the use of the world’s resources and distribution and expansion of the world economy. [Stutz and de Souza 1998: 41]

Merely Geography is a study of environment related with men, space and time. Among two types of geography “Economic Geography” is an element of Human Geography. So in shorts we can say that Economic Geography is the study of location and spatial variations on the earth surface of economic activities related to production, consumption and expansion of goods and services. It deals with economic men of the world and activities of those men and the economic development of the world.

An economic-geographical approach puts spatial concepts such as space, place and scale at the centre of the analysis.

Space: The concept of space refers to physical distance and area. The concept of space allows us to ask simple questions such as where a particular process is happening. Place: The concept of place aims to capture the specificity or uniqueness of particular places that are carved out of space. Scale: The concept of scale therefore helps us to organise places through a typology of spatial scales.

Its areas of study includes Theoretical Economic Geography which focuses on building theories about spatial arrangement and distribution of economic activities; Regional Economic Geography which examines the economic conditions of particular regions or countries of the world; Behavioural Economic Geography which examines the cognitive processes underlying spatial reasoning, locational decision making, and behaviour of firms and individuals and so on.

1.2 Objectives of the Study

Helps understand the basic relationship between Economy and Geography. To know the economic condition of the chosen three countries. To know the contribution of the different working sectors of the countries. To know the relation of the demographic and economic situation of the countries. To get a real life working experience by gathering and analyzing data and compiling them together to make a report.

1.3 Methodology

In order to complete the report we have collected both primary and secondary data. The sources of both primary and secondary data are given below.

Primary data: Class lectures Reference books.
Secondary data: Online journals, Websites, Census etc.

After collecting and carefully analyzing all the data, we used them for the report and the graphs and charts. However, though we have tried to be as much informative as we could due to time limitations and human error there may have been some mistakes on our part and we may have omitted some vital piece of information. We apologise for that.
