New Mexico welcomes business and makes it easy to get started. Although the state maintains consumer and environmental protections, it keeps processes simple and costs low. The state is not highly bureaucratic, although it is mildly understaffed. Entrepreneurs will find relatively low taxes and easy entry possible in the Old Southwest.
In New Mexico, governments at all levels – federal, state, county and city – need supplies and services. Governments do a significant amount of business with the private sector and can be fantastic clients and customers to businesses in many industries. Any business can apply to do business with any governmental body through a vendor registration process.
