Establishing a company in Oregon
Oregon is the 9th largest U.S. state in area, located in the Northwest along the Pacific Ocean. It borders on Washington to the north, Idaho to the east, Nevada in the southwest and California in the south. Due to its location, the Western settlement of Oregon began later than other parts of America. The autonomous state of Oregon was founded in 1848, and it became part of the U.S. in 1859. Its capital is Salem, but the most populated and central city, culturally and economically, is Portland.
Geographically speaking, Oregon offers a great variety of landscapes, beginning with the long stretch of Pacific coastline, through volcanic areas with glacial activity, to waterfalls and a variety of deciduous and evergreen forests. In its eastern regions the state also contains an elevated desert terrain. Climate in Oregon is influenced by the nearby Pacific Ocean, and although most months are mild, there are extreme heat waves in summer and bitterly cold temperatures, including torrential rains, in the winter seasons. The desert regions to the east are dry. Oregon currently has 4 million residents, with over half living in Portland.
