The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, indicated that the Government’s forecast is that the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will grow up to 4 % in the whole of 2023.

In addition, the president has also highlighted that he has done “very well” in terms of employment in the first quarter of the year, with an average salary that is “record.”

“This is also good data. Unemployment has fallen like it hasn’t been seen in 20 years. We are among the countries with the lowest unemployment in the world,” the president stressed.
