The government of Mexico City, Mexico, has unveiled plans to attract more remote workers after entering a partnership with Airbnb and the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Despite concerns among residents that the arrangement will further price them out of the rental market, Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum denied a direct correlation between rental prices and the presence of Airbnb. She said through the new alliance, Airbnb will allow more residents in the city and countrywide to launch their own tourism "Experiences" for tourists. Frédéric Vacheron, Mexico's UNESCO representative, cited Mexico City's "creative tourism" in promoting the partnership. Recent AirDNA data showed short-term rental average daily rates in Mexico City rose by 27 percent to $93 in August, versus August 2019 before the pandemic.
