UKTI in partnership with The British & Colombian Chamber of Commerce in London is running a trade mission to Colombia. Retail sector companies are encouraged to take part, however all sectors are welcome.
The delegation of British companies will gain exposure in the Colombian market amongst the local business community, following country briefings in London and Bogota. There will be a VIP reception, a press conference and tailored business meetings.
As a business partner, Colombia has come a long way in the last ten years. Its image abroad has been transformed significantly, and foreign direct investment has been stimulated by both the macroeconomic stability and growth, and comprehensive programme of reforms. Colombia is now a leading recipient of foreign investment and stands as a pioneering reformer of business regulations in Latin America (World Bank Doing Business Report, 2010). A combination of a British Export focused economy, multitude of world leading services and know-how, British products to offer and a strong Colombian peso make this an apposite time to do business with Colombia.
