Colombia Inside Out is co-hosted by ProColombia and the Colombian Stock Exchange, with the support of Citi Group and other Colombian and UK institutions.
Colombia is one of the most dynamic and competitive economies in the region, and the third largest recipient of foreign investment in Latin America, Colombia Inside Out seeks to further the country's investment potential by leading the discussion on Colombia's way forward to fostering entrepreneurship and boosting productivity and partnerships for business and innovation.
Colombia's Minister for Trade, Industry and Tourism, Mr Jose Manuel Restrepo highlights some advantages of the South American nation. "Colombia is a great opportunity for investors and companies, since through our Free Trade Agreements, they can access markets of 1.5 billion consumers around the world. It's not only about attracting investors to our territory but rather attracting them to export from here."
Flavia Santoro, President of ProColombia, highlights the importance of furthering ties with British and European investors: "Our Government is a friend and facilitator of foreign investment. Colombian Inside Out is part of Colombia's strategy to position itself as a top destination for investment in the region. Currently, the United Kingdom is the second largest European investor in Colombia and the third largest global investor in Colombia."
Colombia is a member of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development OECD and one of the four founding nations of the Pacific Alliance. According to The World Bank's Doing Business 2019, the country offers the greatest protection to investors in Latin America and is the fourth with the greatest ease of doing business in the region.
