An evaluation of the advances in reconstruction in the provinces of Manabí and Esmeraldas was made yesterday by the President of the Republic, Lenín Moreno. The work was carried out after he led the changing of the guard ceremony in the Plaza Grande. “In the guard relay I received the Committee for Reconstruction,” said the President in his Twitter account.
