Canada’s Minister of International Trade, Mary Ng, and Ecuador’s Minister of Foreign Trade, Julio José Prado, launched exploratory talks toward a potential free trade agreement between the two countries.
In the coming weeks, Global Affairs Canada will consult with Canadians to seek their views on potential free trade agreement negotiations with Ecuador. These consultations will help frame Canada’s approach to such talks.
Canada and Ecuador are important commercial partners in the hemisphere. Two-way trade between the two countries is rapidly growing and reached $952.5 million in 2021.
