Colom­bia: More Chi­nese in­vest­ment wel­comed

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - EMBASSY -

Columbia will fur­ther open its doors to Chi­nese in­vestors and en­trepreneurs with a series of pref­er­en­tial poli­cies. The strong sig­nal was de­liv­ered at a busi­ness pro­mo­tion event held by the Columbian Em­bassy in Bei­jing on March 10.

Columbia is a very sta­ble and vi­tal econ­omy and the in­dus­try di­ver­sity in the coun­try is grow­ing fast, said Ale­jan­dro Roa Va­len­cia, the com­mer­cial coun­sel­lor of the Colom­bian Em­bassy.

He stressed that apart from the tra­di­tional oil and min­ing in­dus­tries, Columbia of­fers a huge space for in­vest­ment and such as in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment, tourism and re­tail. A series of tax cuts for for­eign busi­nesses and sim­pler reg­u­la­tions in free trade zones were also stressed at the event.

“Apart from other in­dus­tries, agri­cul­ture and eco-en­ergy are the two sec­tors in which we are es­pe­cially look­ing for­ward to strength­en­ing our co­op­er­a­tion with Chi­nese com­pa­nies,” said Os­car Rueda, the Colom­bian Am­bas­sador to China.
