MINISTRO AULESTIA AFIRMA QUE ESTE ES EL MOMENTO DEL ECUADOR

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

“Este es el momento de invertir, de hacer negocios, de instalarse en el Ecuador” manifestó el Ministro de Desarrollo Urbano y Vivienda, economista Diego Aulestia, durante su visita a la ciudad de Chicago el día de ayer.

El Ministro Aulestia desarrolló una apretada agenda de trabajo durante la cual mantuvo reuniones con representantes de importantes empresas e inversionistas del sector de la construcción, hotelero, planificación y desarrollo urbano del Medio Oeste de Estados Unidos, con la finalidad de dar a conocer las ventajas y oportunidades del Ecuador en esta materia, así como los principales incentivos que ofrece el país para las empresas interesadas en desarrollar proyectos del ámbito de desarrollo urbano, infraestructura hotelera, vivienda, entre otros.

El Ministro fundamentó sus afirmaciones con cifras macroeconómicas que reflejan la excelente situación del país, por un lado, y, por otro la realidad del mercado de vivienda, que presenta oportunidades que podrán ser aprovechadas gracias a la implementación de políticas del Gobierno Nacional, mismas que buscan favorecer el acceso a vivienda de amplios sectores de la población que habían estado tradicionalmente excluidos de mecanismos como créditos de largo plazo.

El Ministro Aulestia, adicionalmente, mantuvo reuniones de trabajo con las más altas autoridades de centros académicos que se mostraron interesados en colaborar con el MIDUVI -Ministerio de Desarrollo Urbano y Vivienda del Ecuador- en iniciativas de planificación y desarrollo urbano y considerar la elaboración de programas específicos en esa materia en función de intereses comunes.

Durante las actividades del ministro Aulestia en Chicago, la Embajada del Ecuador y la Oficina Comercial de Proecuador en esa ciudad, aprovecharon para informar sobre el lanzamiento de la campaña “All you Need” que se desarrolla en las ciudades de Miami, Washington y Chicago, destinada a promocionar los atractivos turísticos del país y la exportación de productos emblemáticos tales como las rosas, camarón y chocolate.

Jose Cristobal—Celebrating 45 years of his dedication and hard work to the Embassy

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

After 45 years of service at the Embassy of Ecuador in Washington, D.C., Jose Cristobal Pilligua decided to say goodbye to the place and the people that saw him grow into the person he is today.

For the past four decades, Cristobal has devoted his life to the Embassy, several Ambassadors of Ecuador to the US and employees whom have taught him many valuable lessons and interesting stories. It all started when Cristobal came to the US in 1969 after getting a job offer from Ambassador Carlos Matilla, whom he met at a restaurant in Guayaquil, Ecuador. The opportunity could’ve not been any better for him as his family was already living in the country as well.

Following his arrival to the states, Cristobal began to work as Ambassador Matilla’s residence butler. His work was instantly noted and he was incorporated as an official staff member of the Embassy, where he has been working all these years. Cristobal has served as an administrative aide and has helped in providing logistical support to the Ambassadors that have in been in service.

From all the years spent at the Embassy, Cristobal says he has lived many significant moments and important visits, such as president Correa’s. “I remember one visit that everyone coined as the “blanket story” of president Correa. It was because I had bought and stored a new blanket/pillow that I knew one day would become handy. President Correa needed to rest in between his meetings and I wanted him to feel comfortable.”

Cristobal’s stories are endless. From a time when State Department personnel though he was the Ambassador to the time when he helped evacuate the Embassy’s premises during an earthquake in 2011. Although there are many interesting stories about Cristobal, the one that will always remain in the hearts of his friends and coworkers at the Embassy, is the one of a man who was loyal to those who surrounded him and who was always willing to go the extra mile for those who served at the Embassy during his time.

Now, officially retired, Cristobal is on his way back to Ecuador where he plans to spend his time growing cacao and coconuts in two small farms in the south of the country.
