Gold Key Matching Service

Face-to-face meetings with potential partners are the most effective tools the U.S. business community can use to increase exports and expand business operations abroad.  The Economic and Commercial Section of the U.S. Embassy in Ecuador offers a complete package for the businessperson visiting this country to meet with potential business partners.  Prior to your trip we will work with you to identify appropriate agents, distributors, joint venture partners, procurement officials, and others you should meet to accomplish your goals while here.

We will schedule appointments with the key officials, and even arrange for a car, driver and translator if so desired.
