Meanwhile, Porrino Perassi, affirmed that the investment dynamism towards the entity has recovered in this 2023 the levels that were between 2015 and 2016, which were years of high investment for the city and that decreased from 2020 and 2021, due to the pandemic.

Such dynamism in 2023 was attributed to the relocation of companies mainly from Asia, a phenomenon better known as nearshoring, from which San Luis Potosí has benefited.
