Service Sector Investment in Colombia

The services sector in Colombia makes up more than 50% of the national GDP and therefore has a great potential for growth, thanks to this it has become one of the largest commercial bets for the country. Currently, initiatives are being carried out to explore new opportunities and markets, improving sector policies and thus expanding the offer.

Through the Productive Transformation Program (PTP), an initiative led by the National Government, we seek to develop world-class subsectors, including: Software and IT services, Outsourcing of services (BPO - KPO - ITO), Shared Services Centers, Data Centers, electrical energy, goods and related services, and thanks to the great attractiveness of the country, health tourism and nature.

In this sense, Colombia represents a great opportunity for investors in the services sector, due to its great competitive advantages:
