Colombia has quickly become one of Latin America’s most important economies, recording strong GDP growth of 4.6% in 2014 – well above the regional growth rates of its neighbouring countries at about 2%.
Tipped as the best place to do business in Latin America by World Bank 2014 survey, there is also an increasing demand for quality infrastructure, transportation, electricity and water due to its rapidly growing middle-class.
Singapore companies in infrastructure will find opportunities as the government has pledged US$33.9 billion in infrastructural development till 2018, consisting of enhancements to roads, railways, ports, airports and riverine navigation.
The oil and gas sector is also looking up, producing more than 1 million barrels a day. Investments in the sector have averaged US$6.9 billion per year since 2010, maximizing returns from expanded production.

  1. Update on Colombia’s economic outlook
  2. Hear about opportunities within the Oil & Gas and Infrastructure sectors.
  3. Understand the legal and fiscal aspects of doing business in Colombia
