Policies to realize FDI potential

Ecuador has formulated programmes and taken steps to realise its considerable FDI potential. Government's efforts have intensified in the face of the economic crisis of 1998-2000. Dollarization has been the boldest among various steps aimed at restoring macroeconomic stability and resuming economic growth, which indeed resumed in 2000 (thanks in part to rising oil prices) and inflation is expected to fall in 2001. Still, a full recovery may take a few years.
