Those present congregated at Pavilion José María Cajigal in Murcia; there, the President was offered a warm welcome. After offering an interview in which he talked in depth about his analysis on the Spanish mortgage crisis that also affects our compatriots, he was prepared to start the awaited accountability report.
In the same manner as in Seville, a representative of the migrant population offered and emotive welcome speech for the President. Sara Cutiopala, who has resided in Spain for ten years, expressed that she was also a victim of the 1999 crisis and that she was forced to migrate to that country; she also affirmed that “it is the first time a President gives the faith, hope, dignity, and sovereignty back to the people”.
Correa also made a reminder of the 99’s Ecuadorian crisis; he expressed that “almost the 60% of children from the commune of Chinchi, in Chimborazo, grew up without their parents because of the horrors of the crisis that forced many people to migrate”.
During the report offered to the Ecuadorian residents, the President went over topics like generation of relegated works, higher tax collection, salaries improvement in different areas from the public sector. He pointed out that Ecuador maintains the lowest unemployment rate in the region. He also talked about increasing social security coverage, which he described as an unwaivable right. He showed the advance in the energy issue with the construction of new hydroelectric power stations by 2016.
He finished his intervention by congratulating Ecuadorian people and highlighting that “the main change I see in the country is the change of attitude of people; we have gotten our faith and self-esteem back”.
The visit of President, Rafael Correa, through Spain along with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Integration, Ricardo Patiño, and the official delegation of the country is still fulfilling its agenda in the cities of Barcelona and Madrid this weekend from November.
