Previous to the sanitary crisis, tourism contributed 8.7% of the Gross Domestic Product (PIB for its acronym in Spanish) in Mexico. It was the main source of currency in dollars in the Good and Services Account (24,573.2 million dollars in 2019, 2,163.9 million dollars higher than oil exports). At the same time, it employed 4.33 million people, and it created 5.8% of paid work nationally. Those job positions received the 9.74% of the total compensation bill. According to the Economic Census of 2019, 786,540 business units depend economically on tourism (16.4% of the whole business units in the country).
