New Mexico Governor’s Report: A Catalyst For High-Tech Growth
A series of business friendly reforms and a “Fund of funds” initiated by Gov. Susana Martinez have transformed New Mexico into a growth leader and Facebook’s choice for its $500-million data center. Last year, New Mexico secured one of the most coveted economic development projects in the country when Los Lunas was chosen to be home to Facebook’s massive new data center, the social media giant’s seventh data hub in the U.S. The project is expected to employ more than 1,000 construction workers during the building phase and create more than 100 permanent new jobs. The second building at the site is expected to be completed in 2020.
