Ecuador 2022




The Business Year: Ecuador 2022 is our seventh annual publication on the Ecuadorian economy. Our research was carried out in the midst of COVID-19 and a major shift along the political spectrum following the election of Guillermo Lasso. A key objective of this publication is to measure the extent to which Lasso has fueled the business landscape with optimism.

In this 176-page edition, which features interviews with top business leaders from across the economy, as well as news and analysis, we cover: green economy, finance, hydrocarbons, mining, industry and commerce, telecoms and IT, transport, construction, real estate, agriculture, health, education, and tourism.
