The Country Office of Ecuador aims to provide effective, innovative support for the government’s development program by seeking promotion of public-private partnerships (PPPs) as a vehicle for investment, leveraging of the equity market through thematic bonds and guarantees, and productive development of Ecuador’s Amazon region.

The country strategy for the 2018-2021 period prioritizes spurring economic growth to consolidate and deepen the social advances achieved since the turn of the century. To this end, the Bank supports the government in its effort to overcome the macroeconomic imbalances currently affecting the country, move toward a growth model in which private initiative takes on a more prominent role, and mitigate the potential adverse impact of this process on the most vulnerable groups. This strategic approach is based on three pillars: strengthening public finances; support for productivity and development of the private sector as engines of growth; deepening of the social advances achieved over the past decade.
