Mexico.- The Confederation of National Chambers of Commerce, Services and Tourism (Concanaco-Servytur) announced that the states of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Chiapas, Tlaxcala and Hidalgo They are the entities in Mexico that register the highest labor informality.
The organization’s president, Héctor Tejada Shaar, warned about the “unbridled” expansion of informal commerce in the Mexican Republic, warning that its proliferation represents a threat to formal trade.
“We express our deep concern about the increasingly frequent proliferation of informal commerce modalities on public roads such as street vendors, which flagrantly occupy areas exclusively for public use. This informal and illegal trade endangers the health and safety of consumers, among other devastating consequences for the well-being of Mexicans”, he pointed out.

Through a statement, the Confederation of National Chambers of Commerce, Services and Tourism pointed out that, on several occasions, the chambers of different states have urged local authorities to implement effective strategies against street vendorssince these compete unfairly with formal vendors, in addition to reducing the income of millions of Mexican families.
“Formal commerce, which is the only one that complies with all hygiene and safety measures, and contributes to Mexico’s economic growth, cannot compete with this modality. This inequity, favored by the authorities through more tax pressure and regulatory requirements for legally established businesses, encourages more and more formal businesses to transition to informality,” Tejada Shaar pointed out.
In this vein, the president of Concanaco emphasized that only formal commerce complies with safety and hygiene measures that are required at this time, while contributing to the economic growth of the country by paying the due taxes to the State.
Likewise, he accused the authorities of encouraging many businesses to decide to transition to informality through tax pressures and the regulatory requirements imposed on them, a situation that ends up forcing establishments to abandon formality.
Meanwhile, using figures from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI), Héctor Tejada pointed out that, as of the fourth quarter of 2021, 31.6 million Mexicans were employed informally, while stating that Oaxaca (81.8%), Guerrero (78.8%), Chiapas (73.4%), Tlaxcala (73.3%) and Hidalgo (72%) These are the states with the highest informality rates in the country.
