Borys A. Mejía Aguirre

Borys A. Mejía Aguirre is the Trade Commissioner of Ecuador in Chicago, Illinois.

After obtaining his Masters in Business from the Army Polytechnic School in Quito, Ecuador, his Masters in Finance from ITESM in Monterrey, Mexico, as well as completing the Advanced Executive Program from Northwestern University in Chicago, IL, Mr. Mejia has acted as the Trade Commissioner of Ecuador in New York (2001 – 2003), in Turkey (2009 – 2011) and currently in Chicago. Mr. Mejia has also worked as a Professor at various Ecuadorian universities (Universidad del Pacífico, Universidad Internacional), and in the private sector as the Export Manager of tropical fruits for the Ecuadorian company Yahumin, and as the Executive Vice-President of the media group Editores MMA Asociados.

The Trade Office of Ecuador in Chicago is one of the four offices that PRO ECUADORhas successfully established in the United States. Our goal is twofold: facilitate trade between Ecuadorian exporters and interested importers from the Midwest Region of the United States, and attract potential investors for Ecuador’s many ongoing public and private projects.

Based in Guayaquil, PRO ECUADOR (Ecuador's Institute of Export and Investment Promotion)is the state entity within the Ministry of Foreign Trade in charge of assisting in the promotion of Ecuadorian exports and investments. Rather than a public agency, Pro Ecuador is more a trading partner that maintains constant contact with local producers and exporters, as well as with those foreign importers and investors interested in doing business with Ecuador, though our 30+ international offices abroad.
