In the past, the city's marine terminals alone handle over 13 million tons of cargo per year, and the port was home to one of the largest commercial dry docks in the country. Being about 30 km upriver, it was the largest fresh-water port of Tzulhon; however, since the 1980s, with the construction of the port of Imasezo in the Tzulkeyo Capital District, the importance of the port of Tzulkeyo has decreased significantly.
One of the most important industry of Tzulkeyo is the steel industry. The steel industry's history in Tzulkeyo predates GEW. By the 1950s, the steel industry became the city's number one industry for employment. The steel industry thrives in the region, with Texor Steel Industries, a prominent steel company, shipping a record 1.15 billion tons of scrap metal to North Boroso during 2003. Other heavy industry companies include TNR Corporation(Harish: Taixo Naumpo Rankin) and Harish Steel Mills.
Technology is a major component of the city's economy, with more than 1,200 technology companies existing within the metro. This high density of technology companies has led to the nickname Goguzembembel Forest being used to describe the Tzulkeyo area, a reference to the abundance of trees in the region and to the Goguzembembel region in Mbamigi.

Tzulkeyo is home to numerous museums and educational institutions, ranging from art museums to institutions devoted to science and wildlife. Among the science-oriented institutions are the Harish Museum of Science and Industry, which consists of five main halls and other ticketed attractions, such as the gunboat Kirbuth, the ultra-large-screen Empirical Theater, and the Meizakoto Planetarium. The Tzulhon Forestry Museum, located in the city's Ficho Park area, offers educational exhibits on forests and forest-related subjects. Also located in Ficho Park are the Palkator Arboretum, the Tzulhon Rose Test Garden, the Soltenna Garden, and the Tzulkeyo Zoo.

Horkanto Amusement Park, in the Anterpaizo district of Southeast Tzulkeyo, is the city's only amusement park and is also one of the country's longest-running amusement parks. It has operated since 1905 and was known as the "Coney Island of Hareland" upon its opening. The amusement park was once renamed as People's Amusement Park in 1950-1985 during the Kuulist regime, but has restored its original name since 1985.
Tzulkeyo is often awarded "Greenest City in Tzulhon" and similar designations. Omisko Titin, the most renowned scientific magazine in Tzulhon, awarded Tzulkeyo the title of the Greenest City in Tzulhon in 2008. The city became a pioneer of state-directed metropolitan planning, a program which was instituted statewide in 1989 to compact the urban growth boundaries of the city.
A speculation of Tzulkeyo's greenness is that Tzulkeyo has a concentration of Astalvi population, and to create an Astalvi-friendly environment, many trees are planted; however, this theory has been challenged because Tzulkeyo does not have an extraordinary high concentration of Astalvi population.
