Mexico's gross domestic product grew by 0.8 percent on quarter in the three months to March 2021, beating a preliminary estimate of 0.6 percent and following a downwardly revised 3.2 percent expansion in the previous period. It was the slowest pace of economic growth since a recovery began in the third quarter of 2020. The service sector growth slowed to 0.9 percent from 3.2 percent in Q4 2020 on the back of a resurgence in COVID cases and new lockdowns across the globe. In addition, industrial output advanced at a slower 0.5 percent (vs 3.6 percent in Q4) as the Texas freeze in February caused power shortages in the manufacturing hubs of northern and central Mexico. Agriculture activity, however, rebounded 0.7 percent (vs -2.1 percent in Q4). GDP in Latin America’s second-biggest economy plummeted by 8.3 percent last year, the biggest decline in about nine decades. source: Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI)

The Mexican gross domestic product advanced 0.4 percent on quarter in the three months to March of 2021, slowing from a 3.3 percent growth in the previous period, although slightly above market expectations of a 0.1 percent growth, a preliminary estimate showed.
