Ecuador will carry out a broad program to protect and restore its cultural heritage with the help of a loan for $37.8 million from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

The program, which will be carried out by the Ministry for Cultural Heritage Coordination, includes some 10 large demonstration projects and asset recovery initiatives in various cities in the country.
