LatinFinance has named Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa as Person of the Year 2015.
In 2014, Correa led Ecuador back to the international financial markets with a $2 billion bond sale that marked a turning point after the country was declared in default in 2008.
At the same time, Correa has deftly managed the Ecuadorian economy and budget, a fact highlighted by the administration’s ability to quickly cut 2015 spending as the price of oil fell.
Correa stands out for taking these pragmatic steps while implementing policies that have fostered economic growth and cut the poverty rate.
The award is decided by LatinFinance’s editors, following consultation with a wide range of market participants.
Previous winners include:
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto (2014)
Peruvian President Ollanta Humala (2013)
Carlos García Moreno of América Móvil (2012)
André Esteves of BTG Pactual (2011)
