We see Quito in a new light, as a city that aims to improve it´s competitiveness, thus enabling the success of it´s businesses, creating employment opportunities and increasing the productivity for its citizens. Our city vision aims to be sustainable, inclusive and environmentally friendly with strategies that satisfy current needs without compromising future generations.
Our development model deeply believes in public-private partnerships as a path to progress, with a particular focus on urban solutions that improve the quality of life of the people, whilest generating more coverage and improving the quality of public services while developing ideal conditions for entrepreneurship and innovation.
We believe and are committed to innovation as the catalyst for economic growth, which inturn will enable social and business progress of the city. We are transforming Quito into a city that builds it´s future hand in hand with social partners, and from the municipality we provide spaces for dialogue and direct collaboration with citizens, the private sector, national and international organizations and universities, so as to identify, develop and assess the impact of solutions implemented in the District.
Our policies aims are to provide legal security to national and foreign investments, this goal is reflected in the confidence with which the private sector has come to our administration. Few cities are carrying out significant projects to the extent that Quito is doing; which in turn, translates into the main incentive we seek to provide, namely boosting investment in the city. For this reason, I want to invite you to be part of this momentum, to be an active participant in the great economic takeoff of our city, I invite you to produce, invest, live, innovate and shine in Quito.
