Privileged geographical sectors
The fiscal incentives have been eliminated in light of fiscal reforms. In spite of this, the Mexican states compete strongly to attract foreign investments by developing programs to draw industries that allow:

 - Reduced prices to purchase real estate.

- Training programs for employees.

- Reductions in payment of taxes.

Privileged Geographical Zones
There are two free trade zones in San Luis Potosi. The "maquiladora" (assembly factories) zone as well as the bonded warehouses and bonded zones (in customs) which are free trading posts to perform activities such as manufacturing, repairing, distribution and sales of merchandise.
