The Economical Transformation Law of Ecuador, from March 13, 2020, started the Dollarization of the country's currency. A monetary substitution such as this, due to the international value and power of the US Dollar was expected to cause several effects and impacts in the national economic structure.
We formed a multidisciplinary study team, with experts from the Ministry of Agriculture, from the private agricultural sector, as well as analysts from the public sector. Our international advisers from Texas A&M provided methodology, and we held a three-day workshop in Quevedo-Manabi, Ecuador.
As the New Agricultural Exports and Investments Consultant for the World Bank SICA Project, I was responsible for the conduction of the work-group "New Agribusiness."
I was also the designated writer of the memoirs of the Workshop. Published by the Ministry of Agriculture in April, 2000.
