In brief: Economic recovery strategies revealed for Mexico’s Quintana Roo

* Mexico’s private sector lobby Confederación de Cámaras Industriales (Concamin) and officials from Quintana Roo’s state government have unveiled economic recovery strategies for the south-eastern state – which is hugely dependent on tourism, one of the sectors most affected by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The strategies aim to diversify the state’s productive activities beyond tourism and attract foreign investment to the sectors of innovation, technology and logistics. Quintana Roo’s economic development minister, Rosa Elena Lozano Vázquez, cited the creation of a new free trade zone in the state’s capital, Chetumal, as an example of these efforts aimed at boosting economic activity.
