  1. New Tourism Minister already has set a goal for 10 percent more tourist arrivals in Ecuador.
  2. Naranjo brings a wealth of knowledge and experience having worked for former Ecuador President Rafael Correa Delgado for 5 years.

Continuing with the work of the outgoing Minister, Vinicio Alvarado, Naranjo aims to increase the arrivals of tourists by at least 10 percent this year, hoping to get approximately 1.5 million arrivals.
