Victoria city, Tamaulipas. The governor, Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca, participated with his counterparts in the country in a videoconference with authorities of the Government of Mexico led by the Secretary of the Interior, Olga Sánchez Cordero; and the Secretary of Health, Jorge Alcocer Varela, in which they reviewed and analyzed proposals and scenarios for the economic reactivation of the country.

Federal officials and the governors of Mexico agreed that the reopening of the country's productive activities should be gradual and safe, "without compromising the health of workers and the population in general."

The objective of the meeting was also to present to the state authorities the plan to return to normality after the Sana Distancia Day, established by the Government of Mexico, which this Wednesday will announce the President of the Republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

The Governor said that the reactivation of economic activities would take place in a phased manner and "it will surely be throughout the state but giving priority to essential companies and all those that meet the essential health requirements that are required."

However, it did not anticipate a date to start this reactivation because it will depend on the behavior of COVID-19 cases in the state.

The state leaders expressed concerns and questions in which they concluded that the reactivation plan should be focused on the reality of each entity, in areas such as education, public spaces and essential productive activities.

All the Governors of the country, as well as the Secretaries of Foreign Relations, Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon, participated in the virtual work meeting; of the Treasury and Public Credit, Arturo Herrera Gutiérrez; of Economics, Graciela Márquez Colín; of Labor and Social Welfare, Luisa María Alcalde Luján; of Public Education, Esteban Moctezuma Barragán; and of Tourism, Miguel Torruco Marqués.

Likewise, the undersecretaries for Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell Ramírez; and for Democratic Development, Social Participation and Religious Affairs, Diana Álvarez Maury, as well as the general directors of the Mexican Institute of Social Security, Zoé Robledo Aburto; and the Institute of Security and Social Services for State Workers, Luis Antonio Ramírez Pineda; and the head of the Institute of Health for Welfare, Juan Antonio Ferrer Aguilar.
