Pennsylvania's economy is powerful and diverse. Former agricultural state, it
experienced an important commercial, industrial and mining development from the
nineteenth century, and has long occupied a preponderant place in the national
economy. Pennsylvania today resides as one of the country's major industrial and

Pennsylvania is one of the first national coal producers, thanks
to gigantic deposits of fatty coal and anthracite in Appalaches. The other
mineral resources are oil, natural gas, iron ore, lead and zinc.
Agriculture and especially breeding (cattle, poultry) are very prosperous
sectors, due to the proximity of the large urban markets of the North American
megalopolis - from Washington to Boston. Cereals, mushrooms (the first national
producer), potatoes and fruits are the most significant crops.
The main industrial sectors are heavy metallurgy (mixtures, steel works),
mechanics (machine tools), chemistry, the pharmaceutical industry, glass,
agri-food (dairy products), electronics, textiles (confectionery) and paper
. Pennsylvania remains an important producer of crude steel as well, although
volumes have declined considerably. An important diversification of the industry
- made necessary in particular by an increasing unemployment rate - has been
taking place these last decades.

deposits, Pittsburgh represents one of the most important steel and glassmaking
sites in the country. The Philadelphia benefits more than a wide range of
industrial productions and has one of the first ports in the United States for

Museum outside Art - and important historical sites: the Independence Hall
