The round of negotiations between Ecuador and El Salvador began in Quito to reach a Partial Agreement of Economic Complementation between the two countries.
Negotiators from both sides will hold sessions for three days. The talks began yesterday.
“We share the commitment and the challenge to continue working for our economies. Both countries want to strengthen trade relations in the region,” said Luz Estrella Rodríguez, vice minister of Economy of El Salvador, who leads the mission alongside Salvadoran ambassador in Quito, Walter Duran. White goods, processed foods, wood, materials and finished products for construction, agribusiness and flowers, would be some of Ecuadorian products that would benefit from this agreement.
“The lists included in the negotiation were agreed with the Ecuadorian productive sector and especially favor the industry and domestic supply with added value,” said Minister of Foreign Trade in charge Alejandro Davalos.
