According to the Global Indicator of Economic Activity (IGAE), conducted by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Inegi), during March 2021, at a national level, tertiary activities corresponding to the commerce and services sector, presented an increase of 3.1% compared to the previous month in the same year.
In turn, primary activities, corresponding to agriculture, fishing and hunting, increased 1.4%, while secondary activities, such as construction, mining and manufacturing, increased 0.7%.
The head of Sedeti highlighted the significant progress of some sectors. At the same time, despite the fact that the international crossing remains under a mobility restriction, only granted to those considered essential workers, the Agile Crossing program of the XXIII Municipality of Tijuana has shown a recovery of the sector, since in the month of April 14 thousand and 31 passes were issued. Therefore, in the monthly comparison there is an increase of 13%.
