Situated in the northwest of South America, the Republic of Ecuador is bordered by Colombia and Peru, with a Pacific coastline. Ecuador’s territory also includes the Galapagos Islands, which lie in the Pacific Ocean, 1000 kms to the west. The capital city is Quito, which is the second-highest capital city in the world.
In the heartland of various Andean civilisations and with territory which became part of the Inca Empire, Ecuador was colonised by the Spanish in the sixteenth century. It achieved independence from Spain in 1820 although to varying degrees, Peru and Colombia laid claim to Ecuador. Finally, however, it emerged as a sovereign state in 1830. Nothing was straightforward while Ecuador tried to establish its territorial borders, it underwent years of negotiation with its neighbours, along with war with Peru in the twentieth century. A treaty ending disputes was signed between the two countries in 1998. After a period of military government in 1970s, Ecuador returned to democracy in 1979. It is now a representative democratic, presidential republic and divided into twenty-four provinces.
Strongly dependent upon agriculture and commodities (especially petroleum), Ecuador has a developing economy. Oil accounts for over 40% of Ecuador’s exports. Bananas (it is the world’s largest exporter), shrimp, cut flowers, timber, coffee and shrimp are important exports. Mining wealth includes antimony and gold. Industry includes metallurgy, processed foods and furniture. The service sector is growing, especially tourism which is able to capitalise on the rich array of Ecuador’s landscape, flora and fauna.
Urbanisation is growing, and around two-thirds of the population are now city dwellers. Ethnically diverse and descended from native populations, Spanish, African and other Europeans, Ecuador is a real tapestry of cultures. Spanish is the official language, but over thirteen others are recognised.
Mainstream culture is derived from Ecuador’s “mestizo” majority- mixed Amerindian/Spanish ancestry. This is evident in literature, art, food and a wide range of music. Soccer is the main sport.
On the world stage, Ecuador is a member of the United Nations and the Organisation of American States.
