Mexico to unveil economic restart tomorrow after coronavirus lockdown

MEXICO CITY.-  The Mexican government’s health committee on Tuesday announced plans to put key industries such as the automotive, mining and construction sectors into the “essential activities” bracket, paving the way for a wider reopening of the economy.

From June 1, Mexico’s health ministry will also allow for varying levels of economic, educational and social activities per state, to be defined on a weekly basis.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday he aims to present plans next week to reopen the economy, as key sectors like carmaking look to begin business again after over a month of quarantine measures to curb the coronavirus outbreak.

"They're going to present me with an initial proposal on Monday," Lopez Obrador told reporters during a regular news conference. "And we want to announce it to you and to the Mexican public on Wednesday or Thursday."

The announcement will be this Wednesday.
