Thinking of starting to export to Colombia? The following is an essential country and customs guide to Colombia.
With a population of 46 million, Colombia is the third-largest country in Latin America, after Brazil and Mexico. This diverse and relatively advanced country has enjoyed a long tradition of economic and political stability and currently has the 33rd largest economy in the world.
Historically, Colombia has looked to the US for new products and technology but more recently Europe has been seen as an interesting alternative. Although trade is relatively small, UK investment in Colombia has been of significant interest and there are numerous opportunities for British companies in many sectors, with our principal export categories being pharmaceuticals, chemicals, machinery and beverages. Primary commodities such as crude oil, coal, coffee and non-ferrous metals remain Colombia’s main exports.
