The Brownsville-Matamoros region offers a world of opportunities for the local and foreign investor. Brownsville is located on the southernmost tip of Texas, separated by the Rio Grande River from its Mexican sister city, Matamoros, Tamaulipas. The area has become a hub for international trade and commerce due to its ideal geographic location, solid infrastructure and logistics, valuable resources, pro-business climate, a young and skilled workforce on both sides of the border, low labor costs, and the region’s overall low cost of living.
Recently named the 6th fastest-growing manufacturing region in the United States (IndustryWeek magazine), Brownsville-Matamoros is positioned for the best import-export operations in the global market, with its largest trading partners being the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe, all of which have increased their investments in the region. Hidden little treasure on the southern tip of Texas, recently named “North America’s Best Cost-Effective City” (FDI magazine) and ranked number 4 in “America’s Next Recovering Job Markets” (BusinessWeek and MoodysEconomy.com), Brownsville is attracting global attention from companies that can’t help but become part of the promising prosperity that awaits them in the Brownsville/Matamoros Borderplex.
In addition to the countless business and investment opportunities, the Brownsville-Matamoros region presents a hybrid of two cultures and languages that make this place unique and exciting. Both cities are historically rich and passionate about the arts, culture, and education. With a year-round pleasant climate and close proximity to water allowing for most kinds of sports and outdoor activities, it is no wonder why people consider Brownsville to be the perfect place to live, learn, work, and play.
