Religion

The constitution guarantees freedom of religion. The law on religion, which has been in force since 1907, abolished the position of the Catholic Church as a state church and legally equates all religious communities.

74% of the population belong to the Catholic Church and over 10% to Reformed denominations. Jehovah’s Witnesses make up 1% of the population. Numerically smaller non-Christian religious minorities are Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Bahais, as well as followers of indigenous beliefs and Afro-American cults. The historical roots of the small Jewish community (center in Quito) were strongly influenced by Jews who emigrated from Europe during the Nazi tyranny and the persecution of Jews. Almost 8% cannot be assigned to any religion.

Tourism

The main attractions of tourism are the Amazon rainforests, wide beaches, lonely mountain landscapes with glaciers and volcanoes as well as old baroque cities and picturesque Indian villages, the capital Quito and the Galápagos Islands. In 2017, Ecuador counted 1.6 million foreign visitors.

Natural resources

Ecuador is a resource-rich country. Oil has been produced on the Santa Elena Peninsula since 1917; around 1970, new deposits were opened up in the north of the Oriente (in the provinces of Napo and Sucumbíos) and made usable by the construction of a pipeline that went into operation in 1972; In 2003 a second pipeline (Oleoducto de Crudos Pesados) was inaugurated. The oil industry has gradually been transferred to state hands. Dissatisfaction with the allocated quota led Ecuador to leave OPEC in 1992, the country remained connected to the organization as an associate member and rejoined in November 2007 (membership until the beginning of 2020). The output could be increased from (1980) 10.8 million t to (2015) 29.1 million t. The oil sector generates (2015) 34.7% of export earnings (2013: 56.5%) and almost a quarter of public revenues. Larger reserves are suspected in the border triangle with Colombia and Peru. The expansion of oil production is meeting with resistance from indigenous peoples and environmentalists. Since 1989, natural gas has been used increasingly to generate energy. The other mining products (above all gold, silver, iron and copper ore) are of little importance with the exception of gold (2015 extraction: 7,161 kg).

Energy industry

Around 46% of the energy is generated by hydropower (largest hydropower plant Paute [1 200 MW]); the rest of the electricity generation is based on thermal power plants (gas power plants) and diesel generators. Electricity generation was (2013) 23.9 billion kWh. The share of renewable energies is currently low, but is still being developed.

Transportation

The road network, the most important mode of transport, is relatively well developed. The two main roads run from north to south: one along the coast, the other, the Carretera Panamericana (1,392 km in Ecuador), through the Sierra. The latter is connected to the road on the Costa by several cross streets. The Oriente region is still hardly accessible in terms of transport. With the exception of a few tourist sections, rail traffic almost completely came to a standstill by the turn of the millennium. In 2007, the extensive renovation of the route network (length 965 km) began. The importance of the inland waterways (especially the Río Guayas) is low. There are flight connections between the larger cities of the country; international airports are the Nuevo Aeropuerto Internacional in Quito and José Joaquín de Olmedo in Guayaquil. Important port cities are Guayaquil, Puerto Bolívar near Machala and Puerto Balao near Esmeraldas (export port for petroleum). Check behealthybytomorrow to see Beautiful Ecuador.

Industry

So far, Ecuador has used oil revenues to finance a large number of measures to promote industry, especially the chemical industry and metal production, so that the commercial sector has gained significantly in importance (share of GDP 2015: 11.9%). The food, luxury goods and textile industries are still of the greatest importance. The industry is concentrated in Guayaquil and Quito.
