Monterrey, Mexico City and Puebla are the three cities Colombia’s main Investment Promotion Agencies will visit to promote the country as investment destination. ACI Medellín, Invest Pacific, Invest in Bogota, ProBarranquilla, Invest in Armenia and Invest in Cartagena participated in this tour coordinated by Procolombia.
During the meetings with businessmen and potential investors in Mexico City and Monterrey, a seminar will be held in each city. The business opportunities and the fastest growing sectors of Bogota, Medellín, Cali, Barranquilla, Armenia and Cartagena will be shown on these seminars.
The seminars will be held in Monterrey, on May 8, in the Live Aqua Urban Resort from 8:30 am to 11:00 am; and in Mexico City, on May 9 in the Hyatt Regency Hotel, from 8:30 am to 11:00 a.m. Additionally, a business conference will be held in Mexico City until 2:00 p.m. after the seminar.
On the other hand, the commission will visit Puebla to hold one-on-one meetings with businessmen interested in exploring investment opportunities in Colombia.
“This visit is a valuable opportunity for Medellín to promote sectors in which it has a vast experience, such as IT services, software development, advanced manufacturing, agribusiness, infrastructure, real estate and tourism,” says Catalina Restrepo, executive director of the Agency for Cooperation and Investment of Medellín and the Metropolitan Area, ACI Medellín.
Medellín is globally renowned for its vocation and its innovative initiatives with high social impact. For its part, Antioquia is considered one of the departments with greater diversity and agro-industrial growth of the country. Also, in terms of infrastructure, the region has a high hotel, tourism, air and land connectivity development which directly benefits business development.
“As an agency which promotes investment and international cooperation, and is responsible for the internationalization of Medellín, this tour allows us to approach to the needs of Mexican investors and to think of a way our city can become the best option for their business,” said Restrepo.
