Spanish entrepreneurs in Colombia qualify the peace process between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC for its Spanish acronym) as an opportunity for the South American country to position itself as a true economic power in America.
“Take away the conflict and Colombia gets full of success,” said the chairman of BBVA in Colombia, Spanish Oscar Cabrera.
Spain accumulated an investment of 5.758 million dollars in Colombia, between 1993 and 2011, according to the Central Bank; and investors see the peace proposal of Juan Manuel Santos, as an excellent strategy for the country’s growth.
Another benefit from a peace agreement would be the oil and mining sector, one of the bases of the Colombian economy, as preached by President Juan Manuel Santos itself. (MZ)
