GCC presented the Trade Awards

The Guayaquil Chamber of Commerce launched the first edition of the COMMERCE AWARDS with the aim of awarding companies that, through their projects or business activities, have made an outstanding contribution to the economic, social and environmental development of the country.

Organizations, companies, private sector micro-enterprises and non-profit organizations participated, with projects implemented for up to 5 years. The applicants were member or non-member companies of the Chamber, incorporated and domiciled in Ecuador, and participated in the following categories:

  1. Innovation.
  2. Digital transformation.
  3. Corporate social responsibility.
  4. E-commerce.
  5. Social entrepreneurship.
  6. Environmental care.
  7. Business reinvention.
  8. Employment generation.

Within the classification and evaluation, the contribution that the companies made during the critical stage of the Covid 19 pandemic was also valued, since the activities were conditioned and many injected creativity and developed new business alternatives. 24 companies participated and after an arduous work with a qualifying jury, the awards ceremony took place on Tuesday afternoon, November 15, in the Fernandina Room of the Hilton Colon Hotel in Guayaquil.
