The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has announced the approval of a $270 million loan to Ecuador to improve the ability of public agencies to provide quality services to citizens.

The country has made significant progress in public administration in recent years, resulting in improved profiles for public employees and better financial management of public administration, among other achievements.

However, significant challenges remain. Last year, citizens gave public services an average score of 6.7 out of 10, with health and transportation services receiving below average scores. Some 53 percent of the population surveyed reported problems in carrying out procedures in a public office, and the government has indicated that an excessive number of employees is assigned to administrative tasks.
