Ecuador seeks to reactivate the issuing market of the United States
The Minister of Tourism Niels Olsen received yesterday the visit of the Ambassador of Ecuador in the United States Ivonne Baki
The authorities maintained a dialogue on the actions necessary to strengthen commercial ties and promote tourism from the North American country.
The Minister of Tourism, Niels Olsen, commented that it is expected to start the tourist reactivation with travelers from the United States, which is one of our main emitters. He stressed that Ecuador is open to business in that country, so collaboration, articulation and joint work with the Embassy to strengthen tourist arrivals from our main international market is very valuable.
Among the topics discussed is the promotion of ecotourism and sustainable tourism, which are job generators, in addition to allowing us to maintain the environmental care of our attractions.
It was agreed to join efforts with the Embassy to promote the Galapagos destination, the gateway to the country for international tourists and an "anchor" to redistribute flows to other national destinations. It is important to remember that by the middle of this month 100% of the population of Galapagos will be immunized against Covid-19, which makes it a destination with more chances of visiting due to the trust it will generate in travelers.
Likewise, continental Ecuador will advance in the next 100 days in the immunization of nine million people, which places it on the right line to transmit positive and trustworthy messages, which are added to the implementation of biosafety protocols to attract the tourists for an orderly and safe revival.
