STATEMENT BY THE EMBASSY OF ECUADOR TO THE UNITED STATES ON MEDIA REPORTS OF A SERVICE CONTRACT BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF ECUADOR AND A US-BASED PUBLIC RELATIONS FIRM

The Embassy of Ecuador to the United States wishes to clarify recent media reports concerning a service contract between a party within the Government of Ecuador and a US-based public relations firm.

As the US Department of Justice has reported, the Government of Ecuador, through its Quito-based communications secretariat known as SECOM (Secretaria Nacional de Comunicación del Ecuador) has retained the services of a New York-based public relations firm, MCSquared, to help communicate Ecuador’s views and achievements and defend our reputation in a global political environment that is at times hostile to our progressive ideology.

The Embassy directs all future inquiries on this matter to SECOM and MCSquared.
