According to Forbes Mexico, the president of the Confederation of National Chambers of Commerce, Services and Tourism (CONCANACO-Servytur), Enrique Solana, declared that the celebration of “Día del Niño” Children’s Day, to be held on April 30, will leave an economic impact of 18.1 billion pesos ($663 million USD), representing an annual increase of 3.6% compared to 2015.
Electronic products will register high sales during this holiday, since CONCANACO-Servytur predicts a growth of 4.8%, while toys will increase only 4%.
The Confederation expects growth in recreational areas 4%, restaurants 3.9%, clothing and footwear 3.2%, and sweets and chocolates 3.3%.
Enrique Solana appealed to consumers across the country to patronize only formally established businesses that offer the necessary quality assurance in products and services acquired during the traditional celebration of Children’s Day.
Children’s Day is a celebration of the welfare and rights of boys and girls; the official day is the third Sunday of August each year according to the United Nations Organization.
In Mexico it is celebrated on April 30 each year. Schools in preschool and elementary levels offer students a full day of activities to commemorate the day, such as festivals, field trips or visits to places of entertainment.
