WELCOME & OPENING REMARKS

PANEL

Creative Sector

The orange economy in Colombia aims to become an attractive sector for investors and increase GDP while preserving culture by emphasizing cinema, theater, media, and the arts as well as new forms of media in the digital age.

Meanwhile, entrepreneurship is exploding in Colombia, as the country welcomes new ideas, new talent, and new investment.
How have recent legislation changes strengthened the

creative economy?

Connectivity Services

These services will change emerging cities into tech cities.

The government understands the importance of tech services and is funding initiatives such as Ruta N. These efforts have led several tech companies to hire young Colombian talent who are eager to explore a broader, more international set of opportunities on a global stage.

Our goal is to promote investment that will create jobs and attract more foreign companies to establish their service centers in Colombia.
