"About 25,000 species of plants, flowers, grow in Ecuador"

The Acting Ambassador of Ecuador to Nigeria, Jaime Campas, has said that about 25,000 species of plants and flowers grow in Ecuador, and employs about 100,000 persons and produce one of the finest flowers in the world.

He made this known during a presentation on the Agricultural Products of the 21st century, recently at the Embassy in Abuja.

He said Ecuador is very fertile and so naturally diverse that about 25,000 species of different plants and flowers grow there.

He said the potential of the agricultural sector is huge, noting that “Around 100,000 people are currently being employed in the Ecuadorian flower industry, half of them are women, which has allowed many of the workers to stay closer to their homes instead of relocating to other cities in search of work."
