  1. 1. Message of the Governor In the State of Chihuahua we are most conscious about the global and highly competitive world we are immersed in; such global demands, higher standards in technology and more industrial know-how, improve our competitiveness, on a daily basis. Hence, our privileged strategic location, vast infrastructure and our exceptional quality of life, added to our highly skilled and qualified labor force, make us, by excellence, your best near-shore business partner. The State of Chihuahua offers the investor a favorable and outstanding business environment. It meets worldwide and world-class industrial standards, with a promising return of investment. The actual establishment of over 550 world class manufacturing operations all over the State, is a key indicator of the outstanding productivity and global competitiveness of our people. The Government of Chihuahua is breaking with the traditional paradigm on government agencies by offering the investor simple, fast start-up procedures and transactions that reduce both timing and expenditures to a minimum. We promote and encourage industrial activity, working in close collaboration with local and international industrial developers, in addition to other service firms, thus fostering industrial growth and consolidation based on attractive incentives programs. Our pro-business attitude most certainly makes a difference when investing in the State. César Horacio Duarte Jáquez Governor of Chihuahua
