Attraction of Foreign Direct Investment
The nearshoring boom has boosted the arrival of foreign direct investment in Guanajuato. Companies from various sectors, such as automotive, electronics, and logistics, have established operations in the region to take advantage of the benefits of this entity. Guanajuato attracted 1,564.5 million dollars of foreign capital in 2022, coming mostly from the Asian countries Japan and China. This is because many Asian automotive manufacturers have chosen this destination to improve their production processes and optimize production lines. This high demand has generated a boom in industrial parks in the region so that companies seeking to establish themselves can operate with the appropriate infrastructure.

This gave it several years of labor experience, which has made it one of the most qualified entities nationwide in the automotive sector.
The region has found an industrial vocation, which has generated the need for a certain profile of professionals focused on engineering activities to satisfy the demand for manufacturing personnel.
