Other important industries include the making of boilers, steam-engines, locomotives, anchors, chain-cables, sailcloth, ropes, paper, woollen and worsted goods, besides general engineering, an aluminium factory, a flax-spinning mill, distilleries and an oil-refinery.

The result was the spontaneous blockade of an oil refinery which led to the blockade of an oil refinery which led to the blockades of September 2000.
