There are countries that are located on two continents and therefore they are called “Transcontinent Nations”. This is the case, for example, of Russia (Asia and Europe), Turkey (Asia and Europe), Egypt (Africa and Asia). There is also a city called bi continental – Istanbul, Turkey. It is the only city in the world divided between two continents (Asia and Europe). There are no flags representing each of the continents. There is indeed an emblem in which five continents are represented. These are the Olympic rings, which symbolize the union in sport of the African, American, Asian, European and oceanic continents.

Industry by nation
Industry is an economic activity that involves the production of goods or services. It is one of the main sources of income for a country, as it generates employment opportunities and wealth for its citizens. Industry can be divided into three main sectors: primary, secondary and tertiary. The primary sector includes activities such as agriculture, fishing and mining, whereas the secondary sector involves manufacturing activities such as automotive production and food processing. The tertiary sector consists of service-oriented activities such as banking, retail, healthcare and education.
Industry is a key component in the development of a nation’s economy as it creates jobs, boosts productivity and provides a source of income for its citizens. Therefore, governments around the world strive to promote industrialization in order to increase their economic growth rate. Industrial development is also essential for countries to keep up with technological advances and remain competitive in the global market. By promoting investment in industry, governments can create jobs while simultaneously improving their citizens’ quality of life by providing better infrastructure and services. Furthermore, industrialization also helps to reduce poverty by providing employment opportunities for people living in rural areas who may otherwise lack access to other sources of income.
