The state of Guanajuato under this present administration has received more than $11bn in foreign investment. The international aspect is very important in Guanajuato, and in this way our economy can grow. We’ve been growing for the past years above 5%. We have in Guanajuato 13 industrial parks, three industrial cities and seven technological parks, for example [Guanajuato Techno Park]. We have four polytechnic universities, and we have more the 30 universities – both public and private. We are perfectly centred in Mexico, which is right beside the US, the most important country in the world. Our government is always investing. They are building new highways so we can become more connected. The Guanajuato Inland Port is the biggest dry port in Mexico, and it has been very important for the development of Guanajuato.
