In this context, the leader of the president of the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (Canacintra), Yucatan delegation, Jorge Charruf Cáceres, estimated that for the second half of the year the recovery of employment will continue, due to “key” factors such as the arrival of private investments and the containment of the advance of Covid-19 infections. 

The leader of the Yucatecan industrialists added that the recovery of jobs in the entity is a reflection of the joint work of the Private Initiative and the government authorities and that the industrial sector will be a very strong pillar in this area.

We see from the IP that the job recovery is on the right track, so we will close the first half of the year with positive numbers; we also estimate that job creation will continue at a good pace during the second semester of this year, ” Charruf Cáceres concluded.
