Oaxaca, Sinaloa and Baja California are placed above all other states in economic recovery despite the presence of Covid-19, according to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI). Which stand out in three sectors: construction, manufacturing and retail, which were greatly affected by the pandemic and the regulations born as a result of it.

In the manufacturing sector, who heads the list is Campeche with 53.7% annual growth, followed by Oaxaca with 33.4% and then Quintana Roo with 30.7 percent. Those with low participation were Sonora with a decrease of 29.5%, followed by Puebla with 16.2% and then the State of Mexico with 9.8 percent.

In the field of construction, Oaxaca has historical figures, expanding by 239.7% in relation to the previous year, later Tabasco with 99% and Chiapas with 94.3 percent. Unfortunately, the states with the greatest contraction are Tlaxcala (83.9%), Morelos (71.3%) and Hidalgo (68.8 percent).

Finally, in retail trade, Colima stands out with an increase of 7.4%, Baja California below with 6.5% and Sinaloa with 5.3 percent. While the most affected were Mexico City (17.4% (, Quintana Roo (15.7%) and Hidalgo (15.2% percent).

These three activities represent, according to INEGI figures, 34.2% of the Gross Domestic Product in Mexico, so a reading of these data helps to understand the economic recovery process in each state.
