Correa: President should be close and sincere with people

MINSK, 28 June (BelTA) – Closeness to people and sincerity are the pillars of the president’s work, Ecuador President Rafael Correa said in an interview with the World View program on RTR Belarus TV channel, BelTA has learned.

The closeness to people gave me the people’s support and helped our government to stay in power for eight years, Rafael Correa said.

The Ecuador president also noted that his country and Latin America should learn a lot from Belarus, from its history. For example, the Gini coefficient is the most commonly used measure of inequality. The Gini coefficient is 0.26 in Belarus, 0.44 in Latin America. It means that our country has a higher level of inequality than Belarus. Ecuador is committed to creating a just society,” Rafael Correa said.

He added that Ecuador has made big progress in ensuring equality. But it is still needed to do a lot to create a fair country with equal opportunities.

Rafael Correa also extended his best wishes to the Belarusian people and wished success in the forthcoming election to the Belarusian President.
