Light industry includes chemicals, plastics, electronics, engineering, and paper, but tourism is the primary revenue earner. The sale of stamps and tobacco and the insurance and banking industries also contribute to the economy. Well-known annual events, such as the Monte Carlo Rally and Monaco Grand Prix, are held in the principality.
