GUADALAJARA

Guadalajara is highly regarded for it's friendly business climate and has become home to many high tech and other multinational companies. Modern industrial parks, numerous large office buildings and access to a well educated work force make Guadalajara "The Place" for many national and foreign companies to do business in Mexico. Guadalajara is also a major national and international transportation and shipping hub which makes the movement of products and personnel very easy.
The local government and the many local business oriented associations are more than willing to provide up to date information and assistance in regards to the start up of a new business or to ease the opening of a branch office or manufacturing plant in Guadalajara. This willingness to help and educate companies about the many positive reasons to relocate is something that is severely lacking in most other Mexican cities.
One the most noteworthy reasons many national as well as foreign companies are relocating to Guadalajara is the quality of life that this area offers for executives as well as their employees. The pleasant year round weather, access to many types of recreation, an abundance of quality hospitals and health care all contribute to the areas attractiveness to business. Also partly responsible is the access to affordable housing in upscale as well as middle class neighborhoods and the availability of quality educational institutions.

Monterrey is known as "The Sultan of the North", partly due to the fact that this city is probably the most business friendly city in Mexico. The friendly and open business climate has helped this city evolve into an enormous industrial and commercial center. Two airports, railway links, over 35 modern industrial parks and a modern, high tech, convention and exhibition center are all results of the commercial success of this city.
Combine all of this with modern housing for the working class as well as incredible residential neighborhoods for executives, modern hospitals, an efficient system of roads and transportation alternatives and you have the ingredients that have made Monterrey a very attractive city to do business in and also to live in. Mix in the cultural, recreational and entertainment possibilities that exists here and it won't take long to realize why so many multi-national companies have either a headquarters or branches here. Proximity to the U.S. border is also closely related to the success, and the general attitude of Monterrey.
A highly educated work force is complimented by numerous colleges and technical learning centers, which produce a continuous and easily trainable work force.
