Dear friends, The Government of the Republic of Ecuador has undertaken a responsible path in the process for the exploitation of natural non-renewable resources, that will insure for future generations a healthy and adequate environment for a good life of its inhabitants; that is, without inhibiting itself from a rational exploitation to generate economic resources that can be invested in social development, for the welfare of its people. The changes made by the Government have established the foundations for this process, and are based upon a deep legal reform, the fundamental instruments of which are the Constitution of the Republic approved in 2008, the National Plan for the Good Life 2009-2013, codes and laws approved, which generate an adequate and stable legal framework, combined with the incentives to attract national and foreign investment. The National Government has undertaken important investments in infrastructure, through important Projects, that have brought a dynamic character to the economy, the generation of employment, an increase in the availability of capital and future savings. Important elements of action have been de ned, that strive to diversify products and markets and establish Strategic Alliances with other nations, to promote the complementation of economies, productive links and the reduction of di erences based on recognizing them, in size and development. This strategic vision in action, rescues the role of the State as the rector, planner, regulator and organizer of economic activities, based on proactive and long term public policies, complemented with private investment, which constitute an accelerator of velopment. These policies have permitted, that during 2010, the Ecuadorian economy has consolidated its recovery, following the 2009 crisis, and it has grown at almost a 4%, and in 2011 experienced one of the highest rates of growth in Latin America, with a percentage greater than 5%. On the other hand, the rate of in ation during 2010 concluded with a 3,33%, a slightly lower percentage than that forecasted by the Government, and the lowest rate in three years. GDP per capita maintained its trend of growth and exceeded 4.000 dollars, a fact that transforms Ecuador into a country of middle-high income, in accordance with the international classi cation. The index of inequality is the lowest in the last decade. According to the Gini Coe cient, during the period between June 2007 and June 2011, it went from 0,52 to 0,47, as a result of the public policies implemented,

02

which have permitted an improvement in the provision of goods and services in favor of the most vulnerable population. The National Government has invested in Strategic Sectors, which fall under the competence of this State Portfolio, over 9.500 million dollars between 2007 and 2011, of which 6.305 million correspond to the hydrocarbons sector; 1.500 million to the electric sector; 1.397 million to the telecommunications sector and 288 million to the water sector. The investment made by the State in large hydroelectric projects under construction, carried out during 2010 and 2011, will signi cantly modify the structure of the energy matrix of the country, going from a 48,33% of hydroelectric generation which was available in 2006, to a 93,53% projected for 2016. Among other things, this will contribute to a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions, by replacing thermal generation with hydroelectricity. This increase in hydroelectric generation, in the medium term, will transform Ecuador, into an electricity exporting country. In addition it will cover the internal demand for electricity with a renewable, clean, and friendly energy towards the environment and at a low cost. Regarding private investment, it is possible to highlight that on the basis of the renegotiation of oil contracts, new investments have been committed to in the order of 1.386 million dollars between 2011 to 2016; and by means of the process for the negotiation of contracts in large mining (large scale mining) it is estimated that new private investments in this sector will reach 5.160 million dollars during the period 2011 - 2016. What was a challenge is now a reality. As a result of this, I invite the International Community to be a part of this process, as has already been the case with governments, institutions, private and public companies that are presently investing in our country. I would like to express our sincere thanks to the countries, development agencies, nancing institutions and national and international companies that have shown their con dence in the policies implemented by the Government of Ecuador, a fact that has permitted us to achieve important investments in infrastructure, which have been fundamental to leverage the economic growth of our country

JORGE GLAS ESPINEL Coordinating Minister for Strategic Sectors 03

Introduction The construction of infrastructure works that cover the demands of 14 million Ecuadorians, the exploitation of the strategic areas of the Nation to generate resources that will bene t the entire population; as well as, obtaining the resources that will permit us to make these and other works a reality, are imperative for the Government of Economist Rafael Correa Delgado. This new edition of the Catalogue of Projects in Strategic Sectors brings up to date the investments and the nancing required for the coming years and strives to orient investors and nancial institutions regarding the opportunities that our country o ers to foreign investment. It also constitutes a guide for governments and companies of the world to become familiar with the areas open to investment, as well as the legal and economic conditions that Ecuador o ers to its investors. This document is a joint e ort of all the Ministries of State that govern the sectors of: Telecommunications, Hydrocarbons, Mining, Electricity and Renewable Energies, as well as the management of water resources, with which it has the purpose of strengthening the relations with the countries of the International Community, as well as generating new alliances with strategic partners to build great works of infrastructure and to take advantage of its natural resources.

04

Strategic Sectors The Constitution of the Republic of Ecuador considers that energy in all of its forms, telecommunications, natural non-renewable resources, hydrocarbons, biodiversity, genetic heritage, the radioelectric spectrum and water, amongst other, constitute the strategic resources of a nation. The Ministry for the Coordination of Strategic Sectors proposes, coordinates, executes, articulates, supervises and evaluates the policies, projects, plans and inter-sector actions taken over by the Ministries of Natural Non-Renewable Resources, Electricity and Renewable Energy, Telecommunications and the National Secretariat for Water, to foster compliance with the National Plan for Development and to improve the quality of, life of citizens and additionally, executes speci c short and medium term programs that will enrich the new model for the sustainable development of the country. Vision Assure the rational, sustainable and e cient use of mining, hydrocarbons and water resources and the e ective rendering of public services of telecommunications and electricity that will generate economic revenues for the country and a social bene t under a minimum environmental impact, directed to guaranteeing the rights of the population. New Strategic Objectives: 1. 2. 3. BE SOVEREIGN, with self-su ciency in electric generation, the re ning of rivates, access to technologies of Information and Communication, and the management of water resources. BE PRODUCTIVE, providing quality in electric and telecommunications services; in the exploitation of hydrocarbons and minerals; and in the advantageous use of mater resources. BE INCLUSIVE, in the provision of public services accessible to all the population, and in the access to the exploitation of resources and the revenue produced by them.

Ecuador Ecuador limits to the north with Colombia, to the south and east with Peru, and to the west with the Paci c Ocean. There are four distinct geographic regions. The rst corresponds to the Sierra or Andean highlands, which traverse the country from the north frontier with Colombia to the frontier with Peru in the south. The second region corresponds to the Coast, a coastal plain between the Andes and the Paci c. The third is the Amazon region, formed by the high basin of the Amazon River. The fourth is the Insular, constituted by the Galpagos Archipelago located 1.000 Km. form the continent, in the Paci c Ocean. The Ecuadorian territory is divided into 24 provinces, which are divided into cantons, and these in turn into urban and rural parishes. The o cial language is Spanish. Ecuador enjoys a very rich ora and fauna, a reason that has placed it in the list of the most mega diverse nations of the world.

06

Invest in Ecuador Ecuador o ers a stable regulatory framework in which the potential for investments in its Strategic Sectors is leveraged, with opportunities to generate mutual bene ts and achieve the development of our countries. As a policy of the Government of Economist Rafael Correa Delgado, is the priority of providing to the public and private sectors, national and foreign the necessary tools that will permit a consolidation of the conditions required to attract investors. Transparency in Public Contracting. All public contracting processes are carried out by the National Institute for Public Acquisitions (INCOP in Spanish), by means of agile transparent, e cient and technologically up-to-date procedures which facilitate the tasks of control both for contracting entities as well as of suppliers and the citizenry in general. The National Institute for Public Acquisitions (INCOP) articulates, harmonizes and controls the execution of works that are carried out with public resources.
