For the same quarter, but in 2020, the spill was for 252 million US dollars, it should be noted that in that period there were still no cases of coronavirus in Yucatan, although international markets had already compressed in March of that year.

For the second quarter of last year, which were the most critical months due to the closure of the world economy, the figure went down to 123 million US dollars. 

For July, August and September, things began to improve, with a spill of 223 US dollars, and for the end of October, November and December of last year the report was 259 million US dollars.

Undoubtedly, the export sector is a great driver of the economic reactivation of Yucatan, and it will surely have better numbers at the end of this first half of the year.
