Prosperity

The composition of the Devon economy has significant variations from the national average. Over time the unique natural and cultural assets within Devon have tended to steer the economy towards certain activities. The vast rural landscapes and fertile lands have naturally tended towards agricultural uses and in 2008 some 3.6% of the wealth economy of Devon was from agricultural industries – four times more than the national average. Tourism generates twice this level of wealth only slightly behind the contribution made by manufacturing.
