An investment-friendly climate
For Investments in Latin America, Colombia is one of the most interesting countries. The focus of the infrastructure programme is the development and modernisation of the important ports and airports, which facilitates the shipment to Colombia. The river Magdalena should be made navigable again and the rail network that is inoperative for many years should be revived. Until 2021, Bogotá airport should get a second Terminal (El Dorado II). The capacity thus increases annually from 21 million passengers to 40 million. The fast economic growth in the last few years led to a clear growth in the freight and passenger traffic.
Air traffic – the hub of Colombia
The El Dorado International Airport is the largest airport of the country and is located in the capital city of Bogotá. Due to its central location in the interior of the country, it is also used by many shipping companies. The important airlines which are also connected with Europe are Iberia, Continental, Delta and Air France.
The infrastructure in Colombia
A network of expressways crosses the country; the most significant is the Pan-American expressway. It connects Colombia with Ecuador and Venezuela. All are maintained by the National Highway Institute, which is controlled by the Ministry of Transport.
