Cancun, Q.R. — The state of Quintana Roo has reported the reactivation of more than 8,200 jobs during the month of November, making it one of the country’s strongest recovering states.
According to data from the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS), Quintana Roo came in fourth with the recovery of 8,268 jobs in November. In economic terms, the state follows Mexico City, Jalisco and Nuevo León.
Quintana Roo also stands out as the entity with the highest positive percentage variation in the recovery of jobs, with 2.29 percent more than last month. Over the last four months, 13,685 jobs have been recovered, according to IMSS.
Although the Mexican Caribbean is one showing signs of fast recovery, stability will take time since it was one of the most affected regions in the country. IMSS reported that in November, the region had 22.4 percent fewer formal jobs compared to those registered in November 2019, the highest variation in the country, a reflection of the economic blow due to the drop in tourists.
The reactivated jobs being recorded are directly related to the tourism and construction sectors, the main employers throughout the state.
