The government of Mexico highlighted this Wednesday that the reopening of the border with the United States to people vaccinated against covid-19 will enable the economy of its northern region to reactivate.
“Let’s give you good news: the reopening of the northern border has been achieved. We will have normality on our border”, said President Andrés Manuel López Obrador at a press conference.
Chancellor Marcelo Ebrard, who participated in the interview, highlighted that the measure will allow “to activate and accelerate economic growth in this border region of Mexico.”
A senior White House official said yesterday that the United States will reopen its borders with Mexico and Canada in early November to travelers vaccinated against covid.
Ebrard recalled that border closure was one of the central issues discussed with US Vice President Kamala Harris during her visit to Mexico in June.
In Mexico, a country of 126 million inhabitants, 66.9 million people were vaccinated, 48.8 million of them with the complete scheme, according to official data released on Tuesday.
The closure had repercussions in the border communities of both countries, as their economies are tightly linked. Many Mexicans work in the United States, while Americans often cross to Mexico primarily to buy goods and medicines at lower prices.
