The MoU will be signed by Mr Juan Carlos Holguín, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility of Ecuador, Ms Vianna Maino Isaías, Minister of Telecommunications and Digital Society of Ecuador, and Mr Margus Noormaa, the Director General of RIA. The parties to the MoU agree to collaborate in supporting cyber capacity building through LAC4 initiative in Ecuador as well as in the Andean region.
