Nuevo León ranks second place in employment generation

MONTERREY – Despite Mexico’s economic slowdown during the first half of the year, Nuevo León remains with greater job security ranking 2nd place nationally in employment generation, below Mexico City.

According to the ministry of Economy and Labor of Nuevo Leon, only in June 5,354 jobs were created, which means 41% more than in the same period of 2018.

Roberto Russildi Montellano, head of the Ministry of Economy and Labor of Nuevo Leon, stressed that Mexico has been experiencing a slowdown as a consequence of the incoming federal government, but expectations could improve as the months go by.

“The important thing is that jobs continue to be generated in Nuevo León despite a nationwide natural slowdown. Fortunately, the productive sector in the entity is solid and helps to avoid negative impacts in the creation of vacancies, “said the official.
