WHY TO INVEST IN BARRANQUILLA?
Colombia in motion
The state of Atlantico and Barranquilla, its capital, are not alone. Behind them is a nation like Colombia, whose economic growth in 2007 has been the highest in 28 years, above Latin America´s average in the same period.

The inflation rate has dropped consistently over the years; in 2013 the lowest rate in 40 years was presented.

During 2013 the highest number of foreign direct investment in the last 20 years was obtained, with a growth of 588% over 2000 and 58% compared to 2008. Total exports between 2007 and 2013 doubled, going from 29.9 billion to 58, $ 8 million.

The Colombian economy grows by the hand with safety; this is why rating agencies have placed the country as a safe place for investing, and why companies around the world have decided to invest in Colombia.
