    THE DISTRICT PROFILE

    Birim South District Assembly is one of the thirty-two (32) administrative districts of the Eastern Region. It was carved out of the former Birim South District, now Birim Central Municipal Assembly in 2008, by Legislative Instrument (LI) 1850 with Akim Swedru as the district capital. The district shares boundaries with the Birim Central Municipal in the North-East, Assin North to the West, Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa and Agona East to the South.

    The economy of the district can be divided into four (4) major sectors as follows: Agriculture (70%), Commerce (10%), Service (10) and Industry (10). 

    Agriculture constitutes the highest economic activity in the district. It engages over 57.9% of the active labour force. Crop farming and livestock production are the major activities. Food crops (cassava, cocoyam and plantain, Cereals-maize and rice), vegetables and tree crops (cocoa, oil palm and citrus) are widely cultivated. Mixed cropping is the predominant farm practice. Farming is generally near subsistence level as majority of farmers do not have access to machinery for farming.
