    The counties in the states of Texas, California and Georgia, in the United States; as well as Coquimbo, in Chile; London, in the United Kingdom; Río Negro, in Argentina, and several of the states of Mexico are examples of other Film Friendly Zones developed in the world, to attract foreign investment to their regions.

    Milestone

    “The signed agreement represents a milestone for the region and for the country in general, since it is the beginning of a project that will show the world the potential and opportunities that exist for large audiovisual productions. This project promotes development and will bring training and preparation to its people, to attend projects that generate economic benefits and employment,” said the Minister of Foreign Trade, Andrés Valenciano.

    The next steps are to create a catalog of service providers for filming projects, conduct high-level training for companies, develop a catalog of both public and private locations, provide ease of filing permit procedures, and create regional incentives. for projects that decide to film in the area.
