• Ecuador  2020

Ecuador was under military rule for a number of years until 1979 when a new Constitution was introduced. It’s economy grew at an average rate of 3-4% a year in the four decades up to the year 2000 and it even avoided shrinking in the 1980's during the Latin American debt crisis. It’s economic model was based on the substitution of imports and the export of primary produce. It has become an important oil exporter and is the world’s largest exporter of bananas.

Ecuador suffered a major crisis around the turn of the Millennium owing to a confluence of unfavourable factors including a drop in the price of oil to record lows. There was a banking collapse and the outcome was that the economy became dollarized.  Since then the economy has resumed growth at a 3/4% average but to some degree it’s fortunes are linked to the price of oil.

Ecuador is well run and stable politically and would benefit from closer integration with it’s neighbours though from an economics perspective the use of the US$ makes this somewhat difficult owing to price divergences.
