Integrated assessment of trade liberalization and trade-related policies: a country study on the Ecuador banana sector

United Nations Environment Programme (2002)

The international trade in bananas is one of the most import economic activities for Ecuador, and is very significant in terms of labour and use of natural resources. Given that bananas have become one of the most controversial commodities within the multilateral trade system in recent years, Ecuadorian policy making and current and future negotiations must focus on achieving better conditions for the Ecuadorian people.
