One of the great strengths of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region is its diversity of sectors of activity. They include:

 
Tourism
THE EXCEPTIONAL ASSETS OF THE PROVENCE-ALPES-COTE D’AZUR REGION
Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur is the 2nd European region for tourist facilities and the Leading French region for leisure and business tourism.
Sunshine of course, but also the sea, the mountains, the unspoilt natural areas, towns and landscape, monuments and history, museums, events, festivals and also the cultural, sport and leisure businesses etc, all the subjects dealt with in this panorama: a multi-faceted alliance that brings together the geographic features of the region’s  natural assets and human activity.
 
KEY FIGURES OF THE SECTOR
► A significant number of jobs, about 105,000 in the core of tourism (including 31% only slightly connected), in a range between 82,000 in the low season and 152,000 in the high season. This is more than in the construction industry, with 113,000 jobs.
► 25,000 Businesses in the region:  tourism is a labour-intensive industry
► Leading destination for French tourists
► 2nd French region for foreign tourists: with 7 million foreign tourists (2008), the region welcomes as many people as Tunisia, and only slightly fewer than Morocco or Croatia.
► 34 million visitors in 2008
► 10 billion € of tourist consumption in PACA, in 2008
► Although domestic tourists account for 59% of hotel customers, our European neighbours are still very attracted, especially the British, Italians, Germans and Belgians..
► Because of its size, climate and the availability of sea and mountains, PACA is a versatile region for tourism.
► At its lowest level, tourism represents 7% of regional paid employment, or 3% more than the national average
