Government officials were in session over three days to improve the two countries’ export supply.

On April 12, 2016, Ecuador and El Salvador began a Round of Negotiations to increase and diversify bilateral trade and achieve better conditions of access through tariff reductions.

Some of the Ecuadorian products that will benefit from this Partial Economic Complementarity Agreement are: white goods, processed foods, wood, construction materials and finishes, agroindustry products, and flowers.

“Our two countries are both committed to the challenge of continuing to work on our economies; and we both want to strengthen trade relations in the region,” said Luz Estrella Rodríguez, El Salvador’s Deputy Minister of the Economy, who led the delegation in conjunction with El Salvador’s ambassador in Quito, Walter Durán.
