France has traditionally enjoyed a fund of goodwill and significant cultural influence in Ecuador. The re-election of Rafael Correa promises much for continuity now that the cooperation between our two countries has been substantially reinforced since the election of François Hollande as President of France, with bilateral talks in October 2012 and visits by France’s Justice Minister Christiane Taubira and Foreign Trade Minister Nicole Bricq in late November/early December 2012. Ecuador’s President Correa has expressed the wish to visit France in 2013.
