Can you name the fourth largest city in America? We'll give you a clue. It begins with "H".
That's right. Houston . The largest city in Texas, it's one of the country's main economic hubs – but you might not realise it.
With a population of 2.1 million, Houston is full of people, the majority of them there for work. In fact, in 2012, the state of Texas was found to have gained more people in the last decade than any other US state. Why? Because it has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country thanks to its rocketing economy and regular creation of new jobs.
And Houston is the epicentre of it all.
Cargo passes through its ports – the tenth largest in the world – while aeronautics, transportation, energy and manufacturing industries all have their feet planted firmly in the city. Even mining, as well as renewable energy, are key drivers in financial activity, followed closely by engineering and health services.
With all that activity – not to mention thousands of graduates churned out by the University of Houston every year, 80 per cent of whom live and work in the area – it is no wonder that there are lots of companies setting up shop in Houston. Indeed, the commercial property market is one the most impressive in the world, with Houston office space in high demand.
The Fortune 500 list once ranked the city second for company headquarters. And you know what they say: if you can't beat them, join them.
