The Ministry of Commerce, Industry, and Tourism, along with ProColombia, invite you to be part of the Colombia Investment Summit 2023, an internationally significant event that will provide you with a unique opportunity to explore the investment potential in one of the most vibrant destinations in Latin America: Colombia.

Taking place from November 20th to 28th, the summit features an academic agenda in Bogotá and sector-specific sessions in various regions through business trips that encompass strategic sectors.

We will journey through 11 departments of the country, highlighting 7 priority sectors that have been identified as crucial for the investment attraction strategy. From agriculture for food sovereignty to promoting energy transition and innovation in shipyards and manufacturing, the Colombia Investment Summit offers a glimpse into the opportunities shaping Colombia's future.

Colombia has a potential for agricultural and agro-industrial growth to achieve food sovereignty, serving the local and international markets with a focus on sustainability. The agri-food sector is considered one of the pillars of the national economy and is recognized worldwide due to its relevance in production and consumption, as well as being an export platform for the region and the world. 

The Colombia Investment Summit 2023 will allow you to know the perspective of the sector, the guidelines that the National Government has outlined and the commitment to promote agro-industrial development through different mechanisms. 

We invite you to learn first-hand about the opportunities that Colombia offers as an investment destination in the agro-industrial sector and to interact with the business environment of the agro-industrial sector in some regions of the country, seeking to establish strategic alliances or accessing agricultural raw materials for manufacturing value-added products in the country.
