On behalf of the people of the United States, I send best wishes to the people of Ecuador as you celebrate the 205th anniversary of your country’s independence on August 10.
On this special occasion, we remember that Guayaquil is host to our one of our oldest consulates in Latin America.
As you celebrate this Independence Day from Quito, to the heights of Chimborazo, to the shores of Machalilla National Park, may you take pride in your nation’s breathtaking natural beauty.
I wish the people of Ecuador good health, prosperity, and happiness for the year to come.
