Drawing on the latest economic information, Lopez Obrador in a video address on YouTube estimated that remittances reached some $3.4 billion in June and $3.
The vast bulk of Mexico’s remittances are sent by millions of Mexicans living in the United States, and the president stated he expected 2020 to be a record-breaking year for them.
Remittances have been a major assistance for the Mexican economy, which contracted more than 17%in the April-June duration compared to the previous quarter.
After major layoffs in the April-June duration, the president stated the economy had only shed 3,430 official jobs in July. On top of that come millions of job losses in the casual economy.
