There was an immediate error in your first sentence. Review your singular v plural presentation rules. There are 2 images in the presentation. You said there was only 1 but, that single image offers a comparison. That is incorrect. For one thing, what you were presented with wasn't a chart. This is a pie chart. In fact, there are 2 pie charts presented for comparison purposes. That is what your first sentence should have actually said. A reference to the industries / sectors and the measurement type would have helped add to the important information that was presented in the comparison images.

By the way, only a graph or bar chart can have presentations that compare its data within one image. A pie chart usually uses 2 image presentations for the information presentation and comparison aspect. Keep that difference in mind for the next time you write the description of the measurement image.

Rather than saying, "On the other hand", since you never said "On the one hand", you could instead use a topic sentence to start the presentation. In the previous paragraph you said "In 1997" so the next paragraph could say "1998 all the way up to 2007..." You cannot start with 1997 again because you already used that time reference in the preceding paragraph.
