The Productive and Tax Advisory Board has 90 days to deliver to President Lenin Moreno the first document of proposals that aim to turn the private sector the engine of the economy.
This is established by Decree 50, signed on Thursday, June 22, the same that created this body. The Council has been operational since Thursday and is composed of an executive committee made up of six representatives from the private sector and six from the public.
The board has 15 days to convene entrepreneurs from various sectors -still to be defined- to dialogue tables. It is expected that at least 50 entrepreneurs will take part.
The ‘macro’ part of the board is currently structured, said Richard Martínez, president of the Ecuadorean Business Committee (CEE) and a member of the Council. For next week a meeting for the members of the public and private sectors is expected to establish the operational aspects of the new body. (I)
