Quito, Nov 13 (EFE) .- The president of the Federation of Exporters of Ecuador, Ivan Ontaneda, was concerned about the effects of the new 10 cents service fee. Customs control for imports, which applies from today in Ecuador, a country in which, he says, it is "very expensive" to produce.

Ontaneda reminded that exporters are not an isolated sector of the economy and buy abroad packaging material, consumption goods, machinery, to add value and grow in exports, but now the rate will increase the cost of the products.

This mainly affects competitiveness, he said on Sonorama radio, in which he recalled that what the export sector needs are bilateral investment treaties, that lower the cost of energy, expand the labor market, "lower superfluous costs of the State" and invigorate public-private partnerships.

"It can not be that Ecuador has 1,650 exporters when neighbors like Peru and Colombia pass 10,000, "he said, calling for" coherence "between the economic and productive front of his country.

On the amount of the rate, he said. that, although "it sounds very little", it does not know yet how it will be calculated: in weight, quantity or volume, for which it pointed out that, before applying it, direct workshops with the sector were needed productive to analyze the real impact of the rate.

For Ontaneda, to be dollarized the economy, "is very expensive" to produce in Ecuador, where the current Government has not implemented a "paquetazo" economic like those of yesteryear, with increases in prices in basic services, for example, but has implemented measures that could raise production costs.

"Companies follow suffocated, drowned and need the opposite: revitalization of the economy, "he said, noting that Ecuadorians require" a bundle of confidence. "

He claimed that if the Government's economic front says that the private sector is the engine of the economy, measures and public policies are needed in the direction of generating employment and incentives for the sector productive.
