Economy of Georgia

Georgia ‘s economy is characterized by a well-developed service sector, industry, agriculture, tourism and other industries.

The state is home to the headquarters of many major companies, including mobile phone operator AT&THome Depot, Delta Airlines , SunTrust bank, UPS, beverage company Coca-Cola , Gulfstream Aerospace, jet aircraft maker, CNN news services, and others..

Georgia is relatively poor in minerals, although high-quality marble, kaolin clay, sand, and gravel are mined here. The state’s extensive forests provide significant timber harvesting and lumber production.

Agriculture is well developed in Georgia. The state’s farmers grow tobacco, cotton, corn, peanuts (the first largest US state in terms of production), pecans, soybeans, strawberries, various vegetables, Christmas trees and many other crops. So many peaches are produced here that Georgia is even called the “Peach State”.

Livestock in Georgia is represented mainly by the breeding of cattle (mainly dairy breeds), pigs and poultry. Agricultural products are processed in numerous food industries, for example, the city of Gainesville, in the area where several large poultry processing plants are located, claims to be the “chicken capital of the world.”

In addition to the processing of agricultural products in Georgia, other industries are also well developed. Traditionally, the textile industry is strong here, the city of Dalton, in the area of ​​​​which there are about one and a half hundred factories for the production of floor coverings, claims to be the “carpet capital of the world.” The state also produces electrical machines, chemicals, pulp and paper products.
