Measures to stimulate economy required
Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua.- Businessmen said that improved public safety by itself will not be enough to keep an economic boom, and incentives are urgently required, in addition to an executive plan to keep employment in the city.
The concern arises after the Mexican Social Security Institute, Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, reported that in July the State of Chihuahua lost 19 jobs, the first drop this year. Until June, the State had been generating an average of 5,024 jobs per month.
Cristina Cunningham Hidalgo, Chairwoman of the Entrepreneurs Coordinating Council (Consejo Coordinador Empresarial) and the National Chamber of Restaurants and Seasoned Food Industry (Camara Nacional de la Industria Restaurantera y de Alimentos Condimentados (Canirac)), said that Canirac has contacted the team of President Elect Enrique Peña Nieto, so that special attention is paid to Ciudad Juarez, where 25% of employment was lost and has not been completely recovered.
