Ecuador is the ninth largest economy in Latin America. From 2000 to 2012, the country has been expanding at an average rate of 1.15 percent on a quarter over quarter basis, mostly due to a rise in exports. Ecuador´s economy is highly dependent on oil exports. Shipments of oil account for 58 percent of total exports and for almost two fifths of government revenue. In order to reach its full growth potential, the country needs to reduce its dependence on oil revenue; increase the tax base; achieve political stability and reduce the levels of poverty and inequality.
