Colombia 2019 - Agriculture

Colombia’s geographic and climatic advantages, alongside its numerous developments, place it in good stead to become a more prominent regional and global player in food production. Efforts to boost financial capacity, especially of small-scale producers, should lead to greater productivity and higher margins for stakeholders along the value chain. Further prioritisation of agro-industry is a key trend that will play out over the coming years, as the country looks to add value to its wide array of produce, with a particular focus on lucrative export markets in Europe, the US and beyond. However, it remains to be seen how the industry can become a driver of broader economic growth, but the rebirth of rural Colombia will be key to any future success.
