Daniel Noboa, elected president of Ecuador, has opted for a young economist of the same age, 35 years old, to be in charge of the country’s finances. Is about Sariha Moya, that happened through the Carlos III University, and who has worked in the public sector for ten years. In the current administration she was in charge of planning strategic programs and projects.
“Welcome to the cabinet of New Ecuador. I have appointed Sariha Moya as Minister of Economy and Finance. I trust in your commitment to the country and to Ecuadorians to carry out effective management of our resources, which improves the quality of life of everyone in Ecuador,” announced the winner of the presidential elections through his social networks.
Noboa communicated his decision from USA, country to which he arrived after visiting Spain in the last days. The leader of the alliance National Democratic Action (ADN), who defines himself as a “moderate social democrat”, received the International Medal of the Community of Madrid from the hands of the regional president Isabel Díaz Ayuso, for his “defense of democracy, freedom, and prosperity, so threatened on the American continent and also on this side of the Atlantic”.
Moya, who is also a teacher and speaks four languages, is part of the team that accompanies Noboa in Washington, where they met him International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank (WB) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). The new government is committed to obtaining a bridge loan from these institutions, for at least 9 months, for job creation. In his electoral campaign, Noboa opted for job creation, especially for young people, in a country that has begun to emigrate again to escape violence and social difficulties.
With this decision, a challenge for a cabinet with gender parity to confront a country harassed by drug trafficking, the centrist Noboa takes a step further in his commitment to women. As chancellor, key to international relations, he has chosen Gabriela Sommerfeld, a well-known businesswoman who has also ventured into the public sector. In front of the Ministry of Production there will be another young woman, Sonsoles García, who was already part of the administrations of the revolutionary Rafael Correa and of Lenin Moreno.
