In 2018 San Luis Potosí was the eighth-fastest growing state in the country. Key growth drivers for the state economy include the automotive, manufacturing, agriculture and tourism sectors. Traditional industries have continued their strong performance into 2019, while new sectors are emerging that are aimed at diversifying the state’s economic offer. Collaboration with other states, coupled with predictions for another strong year, means San Luis Potosí will likely continue to consolidate its position as one of Mexico’s most attractive and reliable states for investment. This chapter contains interviews with Juan Manuel Carreras López, Governor of San Luis Potosí; Gustavo Puente Orozco, Secretary of Economic Development, State of San Luis Potosí, Jaime Chalita Zarur, President for San Luis Potosí, Employers Union of the Mexican Republic; and Hermann Bohrer, President and CEO, BMW Group Plant San Luis Potosí.
