Mexico Outlines Plans for Manufacturing Reopening

International supply chain issues have been critical for manufacturers and related businesses during the COVID-19 crisis just as domestic supply chain issues have been.  One area of particular concern has been guidelines for critical manufacturing and reopening of other manufacturing in Mexico.  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has announced that Mexico will lift restrictions on critical businesses in the coming days. The construction, mining and transportation manufacturing sectors will be added to Mexico’s list of essential activities and allowed to reopen on May 18, and shuttered companies in other sectors will be allowed to reopen on June 1, subject to region-specific conditions.  For more information, contact us at
