The 38-year-old businessman and former ad honorem ambassador-at-large for this country’s strategic issues said these are some of the main goals of his position as foreign minister, which was made official by President Guillermo Lasso on Monday.

He told the talk show Los Desayunos de 24 Horas that he will focus on the proposal of having “more of Ecuador in the world and more of the world in Ecuador” and foster as many free trade treaties as possible.

He also said that he will boost Ecuador’s inclusion in the Pacific Alliance, promoted by the government amid criticism by some sectors and analysts like Juan Paz y Miño, who considers it a business integration mechanism and not between peoples, and made up of Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Peru.

Other goals are signing free trade treaties with countries such as China and Israel, which he considered very important markets.

Regularizing migrants in Ecuador, attracting world tourism and expanding air routes will be also part of the agenda.

He will also keep the diplomatic objective of continuing purchasing Covid-19 vaccines, especially taking into account the new variants of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes this disease.
