Pocono Mountains Economic Development
The four-county Pocono Mountains Region, which includes Carbon, Monroe, Pike and Wayne counties in Pennsylvania, is home to more than 330,000 people. Though the region has been a center of hospitality and tourism for decades, its economy has developed key industry sectors that include technologically driven manufacturing, life sciences and logistics. The region offers a lower-cost location advantage between New York and Philadelphia, and educated workforce and lifestyle opportunities that leverage the region’s abundant outdoor recreation. Major employers include the Tobyhanna Army Depot and Sanofi Pasteur.
