The Ambassador of the Ecuador to the United Kingdom, His Excellency Jaime Marchán Romero
One of Ecuador’s most senior diplomats, Ambassador Marchán has served his country diligently in a long career that spreads over dramatic political changes. In addition to serving as Ambassador in the former Yugoslavia, Italy, Austria, Chile and Switzerland, he has, on various occasions, acted as Ecuador’s Foreign Minister when the country needed a steady pair of hands. Ambassador Marchán has been appointed to represent Ecuador in the UK at a crucial time in the two country’s relations. Following the culmination of the Assange affair, the bilateral relationship has improved markedly and Ambassador Marchán will be looking to kickstart trade and investment links between the two countries.
