Industry and agriculture

For decades, mining had played an important role in Pécs as well as the whole of Baranya County. These operations are dwindling, and gradually replaced by light industry, tobacco processing (BAT Pécsi Dohánygyár Kft), porcelain manufacturing (Zsolnay Porcelánmanufaktúra Rt), beer production (Pécsi Sörfőzde Rt), shoe manufacturing (Szigetvár), cement production (Duna-Dráva Cement Kft), and machine manufacturing (Hauni Hungária Gépgyártó Kft).

As for agriculture, the plains of Baranya County are covered by agrycultural fields, while the south-facing hills enjoy a high number of sunny hours, making them an ideal location for cultivating grapes. These areas are home to the most valuable vineyards of the Mecsekalja and the Villány wine regions, the latter of which is renowned around the world.
