The city of San Luis Potosí has a population of over one million inhabitants.
Since 1999, the city has attracted the attention of European and United States investors due to its political, social, and economic stability. This has encouraged the establishment of large multinational companies, which has made the economy flourish.
Recently, San Luis Potosí, along with its metropolitan area, was named the tenth best city for living in Mexico, according to a study conducted by Inversionista magazine.
It is currently a major industrial city located in a rich agricultural, livestock, and mining region. It is also a strategic commercial and education center due to its geographical location and its means of communication and transport. For more than a century it was also an important railroad center.
San Luis Potosí is an important part of the Bajío development region, with the growing development of the automotive sectorâ€”along with Guanajuato and Aguascalientesâ€”making it a strategic area for that sector.
