I would like to bring your attention to some key legal developments that occurred in Colombia in Customs and Foreign Trade over the last year.
These legal developments are related to 4 major industry topics:
- FTA's and other Trade Agreements
- Trade Defense Measures
- Customs regime and facilitation of foreign trade
- Free Trade Zone Regime
The Colombian government’s focus is to strengthen the economy by entering into trade agreement’s and fully taking advantage of existing ones, protecting its national industry through trade measures when applicable, reforming regulations aiming to facilitate trade and business, and fostering foreign investment into the country via free trade zones.

Please allow me to refer you to the analysis below on the development of Latin America through Foreign Trade & Investment:
José Francisco Mafla and Camilo Castrill at Brigard & Urrutia Abogados explore the development of trade throughout Latin America, and its effect on and importance for the region’s economic growth.
Latin America’s current economic growth levels are among the world’s highest, and the region is preparing its regulations to meet new economic challenges. As such, the fostering of foreign trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) is important to increase GDP growth, create job opportunities, and improve logistics and production. In the pursuit of economic and social development, modern economies are implementing new regulations to develop strategies aimed at attracting new investments and facilitate trade. In this article, we analyse the most important regulatory tools that Latin American countries are developing, with the aim of improving their economic and social conditions, and ultimately consolidating Latin America as a region open to business with favourable conditions for the development of high-value investment projects.
