The amount received on this occasion is the highest, of the last 22 quarters, from 2016 to date, exceeding that of July to September 2020, when 197 million 916 thousand 300 US dollars were captured.

Campeche registered a growth of 35.1 percent compared to the previous year, when the amount was 49 million 315.9 thousand dollars, while in Quintana Roo, the rise is 65.4 percent, since the previous figure was 87 million 534 thousand.
