Director of the Trade Office of Ecuador in Russia, Carlos Lema, said today that imports of flowers from Ecuador grew by 18 percent and represented 35 percent of trade of this item in 2014.
Despite the economic damages left by Western sanctions and falling oil prices in the total purchase of this product, until late April the Ecuadorian decline was only by 2.5 percent, because our flowers are a Russians’ favorite, said Lema.
On the opening ceremony of the Day of Ecuador, included at the fair Moscow Flower Show, Lema said that this day is seeking to draw public attention to Ecuadorian roses and bananas and particularly foster sales in the huge Russian market.
Organizers of this economic and cultural event gave visitors more than 10,000 Ecuadorian roses, exhibited a dress designed with buds of roses and a retro car Austin-Healey-3000 decorated with these flowers.
Another interest for the thousands of people attending the fair, despite the storm forecast for today in Moscow, is tasting bananas from Ecuador, which are the second most important items of the bilateral trade.
