He stressed that businessmen reinforced sanitary measures to provide tourists with safe vacations, with the aim of avoiding a rebound in cases of Covid-19 infections, and to advance in the total labor reactivation of the various sectors.
The business leader pointed out that in the commerce, services, and tourism sectors they are confident that the 2021 summer holidays will be more favorable than in 2020, as the measures implemented by the authorities and private initiative, as well as the progress in the National Vaccination Plan in the state, give confidence both to employers, workers and society in general, to go on vacation.
“We are clear that without health there is no activity”
