Due to its proximity to the sea, the district of Alappuzha primarily rests on agrarian and marine economy, with the tourism sector contributing substantially. Coir manufacturing is the most famous activity in Alappuzha, besides other industries such as handlooms and marine products, among other small-scale industries like matches and mats. Revolving around the Kuttanad region, which is popularly called the ‘Rice Bowl of India’, the Alappuzha district produces fine quality of rice.
