Economy - overview:
Light industries have been expanding quickly in recent years as the government seeks to diversify the economy away from tourism. Nonetheless, tourism continues to provide much of the republic's income, accounting for about half of GDP. Quarried stone is an arcane though important export. Another unusual source of revenue is the sale of postage stamps and coins: both are popular with collectors and together account for over 10% of government income. San Marino enjoys the status of a tax haven, as a growing number of non-resident deposits have been made in the principality's banks.
