Employment by sectors, Carinthia, 2021From wikipedia: Carinthia (German: Kärnten, German pronunciation: [ˈkɛɐ̯ntn̩] (listen); Slovene: Koroška, pronunciation ; Italian: Carinzia) is the southernmost Austrian state or Land.

Carinthian Slovene dialects, which predominated in the southeastern part of the region up to the first half of the 20th century, are now spoken by a small minority.

Carinthia's main industries are tourism, electronics, engineering, forestry, and agriculture. The multinational corporations Philips, Infineon and Siemens have large operations there.
