A: Literally, to "boost" something is to "raise something by pushing or lifting it". E.g. a rocket can boost a spaceship = it pushes it upwards.

Figuratively, when you "boost the economy" or "boost an industry" or "boost someone's confidence", you raise it; you make it higher or bigger, you help it to develop, help it to be more successful.
