Colombia is the fourth-largest economy in Latin America. The country is characterized by political stability and a firm respect for private ownership and initiative. As a result, Colombia enjoys an investment-grade rating by the top three global risk-assessment firms (S&P, Fitch, and Moody's). It is also judged the fourth friendliest destination in Latin America to do business. Colombia is part of the OECD, allowing the country to implement better social, economic and environmental policies, aligned with international standards.
The most important Colombian industries are finance, services, retail, industrial and oil & gas. Colombia’s strategy is to prioritise innovation as a cross-cutting component for the transformation of products and services to generate added value and skilled employment. Government entities are focusing their efforts on creating new sources of growth through the development of non-traditional sectors, such as the creative industries, tourism, textiles, handicrafts, and design.
