Synopsis:

Uncertainty is a word that may well describe the world today. The “global town” increasingly shares the benefits, but also the risks of an interconnected reality and Colombia is no exception.

A trading and market-based economy, Colombia stands, together with Peru, Chile and Mexico, as a not ideological bloc, the Pacific Alliance, aimed at raising the living standards of their populations and boosting exchange of factors, investments, ideas and people

Also, aiming at exchanging a 50 year violent conflict for a battle of ideas in political scenarios, the Government of Colombia negotiated a peace agreement with the FARC, which was, however, voted against by a slim majority on a plebiscite last October 2. Modifications proposed by the leaders of the “NO” side are now being negotiated by the government hoping to reached a better agreement.
