UAE-Ecuador Economic Links Grow


Ecuador held a chocolate and coffee economic trade forum Sept. 4–5 in Quito, Ecuador.

The forum also included importers from Canada, the United States, Mexico, Chile, Germany, Spain, France, Netherlands, Italy, the UK, Sweden, Turkey, China, South Korea, Japan, and the UAE.

As Ecuador’s economy continues with steady economic growth, it is looking for destinations for two of its main exports—coffee and chocolate.

The UAE in particular is strengthening its economic ties to Ecuador, through Pro Ecuador, an organization that promotes trade between Ecuador and the UAE.

According to a press release from Pro Ecuador: “Tourism from the Middle East to Ecuador is witnessing major growth due to Pro Ecuador’s association with The Department of Economic Development in Dubai, and its direct approach with the region’s business community, which has seen massive growth in mutual trade over the last two years.” Trade between Ecuador and the UAE has grown 60% so far in 2014.
