Economic Competitiveness


In 2020, San Antonio is recognized as a leader in business that prospers through innovation in 21st century industries.

San Antonio has a highly qualified and educated workforce and provides economic opportunity for all of its residents. The city fosters entrepreneurship as the engine of economic prosperity. It capitalizes on its unique historical and cultural heritage, as well as local institutions like its military bases, universities, medical centers and international airport system to become a leader in the global economy.

Economic competitiveness is at the core of what makes San Antonio a fast- growing, desirable city full of opportunity. In San Antonio and Bexar County, we have put a focus on both recruiting new talent and building up our homegrown workforce to provide opportunity for all.

Increase per Capita Income

  On Track

Income affects progress in many other SA2020 indicators, including family well-being, personal health, and overall quality of life. In 2015, we made enough gains here to put us On Track to meet our 2020 target. Current progress in other indicators – especially unemployment and educational attainment – may start paying dividends in increased per capita income in the future.
