Ecuador Needs Radical Changes, Correa

Quito, Mar 21 (Prensa Latina) Ecuador needs deep, radical and fast changes of the current structure, a social revolution, not mild changes, said president Rafael Correa.
The Ecuadorean leader presided the cabinet social branch meeting and outlined the Development Program for 2007, that will focus on poverty fighting by generating capacities, social protection and economic inclusion.
To generate capacities means opening access to basic services and providing quality education, health care, housing and social protection, said Correa.
In this yer plan social protection involves recognizing the rights of the poor and vulnerable sectors to enjoy state protection and aid, while economic inclusion means creating jobs and improving income.
The meeting was attended also by the general secretaries for Public Administration and Planning, Vinicio Alvarado and Fander Falcon, and Economy Vice Minister Hugo Jacome.
