Colombia’s consistently sound economic policies and aggressive promotion of free trade agreements in the last few years have pushed the country into a leading position within Latin America. Investments have poured into industrial production of textiles, oil, chemicals, gold, coal, and emeralds, bolstering the country’s economic stability. Despite falling commodity prices and the Colombian economy’s reliance on oil as a main export, their economy looks promising, and the government proves determined to diversify its industrial base and encourage its private sector to enter into public/private partnerships with the participation of foreign investment. The ongoing peace agreement negotiations with local political interests helps to expand the thriving tourism and agribusiness sectors.
