King Felipe VI and the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, will hold separate meetings this Wednesday with the Ecuadorian President, Daniel Noboa, who will travel to Madrid on the occasion of the International Tourism Fair (Fitur) in which Ecuador is a guest country in this edition, as reported by Zarzuela and Moncloa. Previously, the president will inaugurate this new edition of the tourism fair in Ifema together with the Kings, as confirmed by sources from the Ecuadorian Government. His presence had initially been ruled out due to the internal situation in the Andean country. In fact, this will be Noboa’s first trip abroad after the latest events in Ecuador, where violence linked to drug trafficking has skyrocketed and a few days ago there was an armed assault on a television, among others, which led the president to declare that the country is immersed in an “internal armed conflict.” As reported by the King’s House, the meeting will take place early in the afternoon at the Zarzuela Palace. After that, Noboa will move to the Moncloa Palace, where he will meet with Sánchez, with whom he already spoke by phone a few days ago and who conveyed Spain’s support in the face of the serious crisis that the country is going through. Likewise, the Ecuadorian president will participate on Thursday in the business meeting ‘A bet on the future’ accompanied by the Minister of Production, Foreign Trade, Investment and Fisheries and the Minister of Tourism organized by the CEOE. This will be Noboa’s second visit to Spain since he was elected in the second round of the presidential elections held last October to complete the mandate of Guillermo Lasso until May 2025. Before taking office on November 23, Noboa He visited Madrid and then met with Felipe VI, in addition to holding a meeting with the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, and participating in a meeting with businessmen. Precisely, before traveling again to Madrid, Noboa appointed this Monday the former assemblywoman Wilma Andrade, a member of the Democratic Left (ID) party, as the new ambassador in Spain, according to the Ecuadorian press. Andrade and Noboa were colleagues on the Economic, Productive and Microenterprise Development Commission, in the period 2021-2023, of the dissolved National Assembly, where they respectively held the positions of president and vice president.
