InSA is San Antonio's initiative to to turn the city into the largest export center in the United States. San Antonio is one of Texas’ fastest growing and most dynamic cities. With its central location in Texas, it has become a strategic center for business between the United States and Mexico. San Antonio’s population and economy have seen tremendous growth over the past eight years. The region is rapidly emerging as a national center for business services, cyber-security, bio-sciences and healthcare and aerospace, as well as a major manufacturing center.
The economic downturn of 2008 hurt the economies of many large metropolitan cities across the country. San Antonio however was less affected by the downturn because of the combined benefits of low housing prices, a sizable presence of federal employees, tremendous growth from the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure and a diversified industrial base.
Early in the recovery period, San Antonio was ranked among the top ten U.S. metro areas for export growth with a seventh place national ranking from 2009 to 2010. The region ranked eighteenth in the period from 2003 to 2008. Although some of the region’s largest trading partners experienced declines, they were offset by strong growth in emerging markets, keeping local businesses stable.
Our goal is to continue building upon San Antonio's long tradition of international business and keeping the city a globally connected community. Following opportunity to every corner of the globe, our local businesses will be equally at ease selling their products to Dusseldorf as to Dallas. They will know how to handle trade regulations with Moscow as well as Monterrey. The San Antonio entrepreneurs building tomorrow’s technologies will know how to manage business cycles in Bangalore as well as in Boston. And our local students will learn from their peers in Shanghai as well as those in Southtown.
