Subdued economic growth has further impacted Ecuador's liquidity postion, which could cause delays in accessing foreign currency. With the vistory of President Lenin Moreno, the commercial environment is expected to see gradual improvements as he takes a more open and collaborative approach to private and foreign investment.
