City of Houston
Houston truly is an international city. People from all over the world come here (more than 1.4 million Houstonians—over one in five—are foreign-born) thanks to a robust local economy, taking the lead in industries such as oil and gas, healthcare, technology and education.
Houston is home to the Johnson Space Center, the training base for our nation's astronauts and the site of Mission Control. Also, the Texas Medical Center (TMC) with 21 renowned hospitals—including M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, the No. 1 cancer hospital in the country — 13 support organizations, eight academic and research institutions, six nursing programs, three public health organizations, three medical schools, two universities, two pharmacy schools and dental school—is the largest medical complex in the world.
26 companies ranked on the 2015 Forbes Global 2000 list have their world headquarters in the Houston region. Foreign governments also understand the important role Houston plays in the world, establishing 91 consular offices, ranking Houston third behind New York and Los Angeles. In addition to a strong economy and low-cost of living, Houston offers many first rate amenities such as world-class museums, five star restaurants and star studded entertainment that attract people from all over the world.
