Maricopa Association of Governments Reflect’s on COVID-19’s Impact on Tourism in Arizona

The Maricopa Association of Governments recently released an in-depth report on COVID-19’s effects on Arizona tourism and trade with North America. The white paper provides important data on how the pandemic has dealt a major blow to the leisure and hospitality sector, with tourism jobs decreasing by 61,100 since February (see graph above). It also details trilateral fluctuations in manufacturing exports and imports; notably, that manufacturing exports from Arizona to Mexico dropped 41.5% in April and are now recovering, but still below 2019 levels. It also discusses COVID-19’s impacts on Mexico’s automotive industry and North American supply chains and offers an outlook for Fall 2020.
