Economic mission to Colombia

Economic mission to Colombia

Do you fancy taking part in Colombia’s economic upturn? Come and explore the many business opportunities the country offers. We are visiting Bogota with AWEX from 24 to 27 November for a multisector economic mission with a focus on infrastructure.

Did you know that Colombia has experienced an economic boom in recent years? Following the peace agreement with FARC in 2016, the government has made ongoing investments in new development projects, bringing about a new era of prosperity and security for the country.

Some sectors, particularly tourism and infrastructure, have experienced a real boom and demand for goods and services in the digital, energy and food sectors has grown exponentially.

Learn with cutting-edge players!

Thanks to a partnership with in particular the Inter-American Development Bank, you will find out about all aspects of the Colombian market: procurement contracts, large infrastructure projects, etc.

Over three days we will help you to identify concrete opportunities in Bogota. In addition to many seminars on offer, we shall organise visits to inspiring projects and meetings with public awarding authorities. You will also have the benefit of a personalised agenda with potential customers and partners.

The mission can be extended to include San José in Costa Rica on 28 and 29 November.
Interested? Sign up via this form before 13 September.
