But who will refund the damage?

Ecuadorian government restores fuel subsidy to stop protests

After 12 days of unrest in Ecuador's capital Quito, protests have stopped as Ecuador's government has agreed to restore fuel subsidies in a deal with indigenous leaders, yesterday evening. "With this agreement, the mobilisations ... across Ecuador are terminated and we commit ourselves to restoring peace in the country," said a statement from both sides.

The indigenous umbrella group Conaie called on its members to come together to "clean the streets" of barricades and debris after the damage caused by 12 days of protests, BBC.com reported.

However, what about the financial damage that it caused to all kind of industries, including the floriculture sector (which amounts more than $30 million)? Who will pay or refund that? That's still a major question. 

Over the last days, Expoflores kept everyone up to date via their Twitter Page, and now, in today's post, thank their workers for their effort and commitment to work.
