Ambassador from Ecuador hopes for strengthened relations with Qatar

Ecuadorian ambassador Ivonne A-Baki says her country is optimistic that it can strengthen bilateral relations with Qatar.

“I have identified several areas of trade and businesses where there could be more intense co-operation between Doha and Quito,” she said prior to Ecuador’s trade and investment minister Pablo Campana’s visit to Qatar.

The Latin American nation’s envoy described Qatar as an amazing destination with remarkably good scope for attracting many tourists if it is marketed correctly in South America. At the same time she was highlighting the necessity of introducing direct air connectivity between Doha and Quito, Ecuador’s capital.

Gulf-times.com reported how currently Qatar Airways is operating cargo flights from Quito to Doha. The ambassador hopes the introduction of regular passenger flights could help export Ecuadorian bananas -among other things- to this region. “Ecuador is one of the largest producers of bananas in the world and people in Qatar could also get a chance to regularly savour fruits and vegetables from Ecuador along with those from other markets.”
