Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque is the county seat of Bernalillo County and is situated in the central part of New Mexico straddling the Rio Grande. With an estimated population of 545,000, Albuquerque is the largest city in New Mexico and ranks as the 32nd-largest city in the United States. Approximately half the people in New Mexico live in the Albuquerque area. Founded in 1706, Albuquerque has retained deep roots to its past, while simultaneously embracing the cutting edge of the future. The city’s unique mixture of Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo heritages offers visitors a variety of activities and historical sites. Albuquerque is home to the University of New Mexico (UNM), a public research university founded in 1889. It is considered New Mexico's flagship research institution.

As New Mexico's largest city, Albuquerque is also its economic center, accounting for almost half of the state's economic activity. Albuquerque's success can be attributed to a diverse economic base consisting of government, services, trade, agriculture, tourism, manufacturing, and research and development. Situated at the center of the New Mexico Technology Corridor, there are a number of high-tech private companies and government institutions along the Rio Grande.
