San Antonio, the eighth largest city in the U.S., and the second fastest growing city among those with populations of one million or more, provides a dynamic environment for business in a community with a variety of educational, cultural, and recreational resources. In the May 29, 2000 issue of Forbes Magazine, San Antonio was selected as number eight, out of the top 15, "Best Places to Put Your Business" in the United States. The economy of San Antonio is a healthy mix of business services, manufacturing, health care, communications, corporate and regional offices, government, and the convention/tourism industry. The Riverwalk and the Alamo are as much a part of San Antonio as are profits and a pro-business climate. San Antonio businesses benefit from the city's proximity to Mexico, the growing Texas and U.S. markets, and the cost advantages of life in this unique city.
