Interviewed in the framework of the delivery of the 2020 Citibanamex Economy Prize, the official stressed that the information on the last quarter has yet to be seen.

But we will know as soon as the fourth quarter of the year is published, there are very specific dates. The message that should be given is that the recovery has not been interrupted, ”he stressed.
Gabriel Yorio explained that the third quarter had two very clear impacts: one, the accounting of the Outsourcing Law. “The way intermediate goods are accounted for in the production chain, and this has an immediate effect on the way the product is reflected. This does not mean that the recovery has been interrupted, ”he said.
He added that the other impact has been the third wave of Covid-19 -which part was registered in the third quarter-, and specified that the population has already learned to deal with the pandemic, and as soon as new waves are observed, certain sectors Productive people naturally restrict their activities.
