As capital of the industrial state of Nuevo Leon and Mexico's third largest city, Monterrey's "heart beat" is important for Mexico's economic development.
Monterrey's traditions are centered around the cement, glass, steel and beer industries that flourished in this vibrant city. Its proximity to the border at Laredo, Texas offers an easy way for exports to US markets. Monterrey's financial community and contribution drive the local manufacture of products and impact Mexico's overall economy significantly.
To revitalize the downtown area, a forty acre site was cleared and the "Macro Plaza" was built. Modern buildings surround the square which is filled with fountains, statues, resting grounds and other accoutrements.
El Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, commonly known as "El Tec", is Mexico's equivalent of the Harvard Business School, Wharton School of Finance and other similar learning institutions. The UDEM (Universidad de Monterrey) and the Universidad Autonoma are other fine higher learning institutions with high level curricula and academic standards sanctioned by several associations in the US.
Business habits and ethics resemble those found in the US and other world financial and manufacturing centers.
Though somewhat bereft of local natural attractions, Monterrey is the gateway for white-wing dove hunting and bass fishing expeditions to the state of Tamaulipas.
