The elimination of the advanced income tax, the reform to the Capital Gains Act, and the repeal of the Exit Tax (ISD) were some of the suggestions raised yesterday by representatives of the Chambers of Commerce during the dialogue roundtables of the Advisory, Productive and Tax Council that met yesterday in Guayaquil.
Taxes, productive environment, access to markets (national and international), investment and financing, and innovation and entrepreneurship were the five topics addressed by entrepreneurs and workers’ guilds. The session was attended by Minister of Industry and Productivity (MIPRO) Eva García and Foreign Trade Minister Pablo Campana. The representatives of the Federation of Chambers of Commerce of Ecuador Patricio Alarcón, the Chamber of Commerce of Guayaquil Juan Carlos Diaz-Granados, and the Chamber of Commerce of Cuenca Xavier Patiño, agreed that dialogue is good, but immediate action is necessary.
