Sovereign risk remains CCC-rated. Given the continued slump in oil prices, the fiscal and current-account deficits have widened, raising the public debt/GDP ratio above 30% (a threshold in The Economist Intelligence Unit's model). Meanwhile, international reserve levels remain low, and the gross external financing requirement has risen. Concerns about external financing persist, given the restricted access to international credit markets.

Dollarisation will partly shield Ecuador from external volatility, although liquidity levels will remain under some pressure from persistently low oil prices. Concerns about fiscal management, as well as fluctuations in the level of foreign reserves, sustain a lingering-albeit low probability-risk that dollarisation may be abandoned.

The banking sector is stable and relatively profitable. Slower GDP growth has caused banks to reduce lending to retain liquidity and increase provisions. Government intervention and a rising ratio of non-performing loans will constrain profitability, and sustain risks.
