In brief: Ecuador to present investment projects totalling US$30bn

* Ecuador’s minister of production, foreign trade, investment and fishing, Julio José Prado, has announced that the government will present investment opportunities totalling US$30bn to participants at the investment forum ‘Ecuador Open for Business 2021’, which will take place from 18-19 November. Prado said that the forum will be Ecuador’s “largest in the last 15 years” and will feature local and international businesses, investors, investment banks, and development banks. He said that the approval of the government’s tax reform bill, as well as planned bills on labour regulations and investment, would be “tremendously important in generating a business climate that over the next four years will allow us to bring in US$30bn in public-private investment projects.”
