Mangaluru’s heritage as an important sea trading port created a cosmopolitan city with a diverse economy, characterised by fisheries, tile factories, boat- building and a crucial connection with the Lakshadweep Archipelago. Decline in traditional industries coincided with a rise in IT, Banking, Healthcare and Education, shifting Mangaluru’s economy away from a material foundation towards service base. Today, Mangaluru would like to see it itself as a coastal confluence where Nature ad Opportunity meet. To achieve this city aims to reactivate its river front, develop integrated and intelligent multimodal transportation network, create incubation centre for innovation and ensure accountability through smart technology etc.
