MEXICO CITY, May 15 (Reuters) - Mexico’s automotive industry can begin operating again before June 1 if companies have already completed the process of establishing safety protocols aimed at containing the coronavirus pandemic, the government said on Friday.
“If the process is concluded and approved before June 1, the relevant company or industry will be able to begin its operations,” the government said in its official gazette.
The new publication in the gazette follows confusion over whether the industry could start on Monday or would have to wait until June 1.
The instruction refers to manufacturers of transportation equipment, as well as the mining and construction industries, which have been designated as essential industries and from May 18 can begin establishing their security protocols. (Reporting by Dave Graham)
