2017 Bogotá Conference: "Colombia in the Eyes of Wall Street"

June 05, 2017

New York, June 5, 2017—The implementation of the peace accord with the FARC negotiated by the administration of President Juan Manuel Santos has dominated Colombia's political agenda. International investors have closely followed the process as they hope for a more favorable security environment in the country. Attention is now shifting toward the 2018 presidential election, which will define the direction of post-conflict Colombia. The country’s economic outlook remains positive as it battles low commodity prices and inflation, but structural reforms will be needed to sustain economic growth.

AS/COA's twenty-first conference in Bogotá, in partnership with ANIF and Fedesarrollo, will look at the country's economic and political forecasts, as well as its trade agenda, by bringing together Wall Street analysts and investors and leading political figures on Wednesday, June 7, 8:00 a.m. This event will be webcast live.

Local and international panelists at the conference will include: Mauricio Cárdenas, Minister of Finance and Public Credit; Sergio Clavijo, Director, ANIF; Iván Duque, Senator, Democratic Center Party; Richard Francis, Director of Sovereign Ratings, Fitch Ratings; Mauricio Garrón, Director of Analysis and Energy Strategies, CAF – Development Bank of Latin America; Munir Jalil, Director, Chief Economist for the Andean Region, Citi; Clara López, former Minister of Labor; Marta Lucia Ramírez, former Minister of Defense; Leonardo Villar, Executive Director, Fedesarrollo; and Adriana La Rotta, Media Relations Senior Director, Americas Society/Council of the Americas.
