Colombian imports in 2016 were registered at  $40 million USD, a 5% increase over the previous year, a fact that represents great opportunities for market expansion, stimulated additionally by the revision of the Mercosur Agreement, and creating more opportunites to close business deals between both countries, uniting their strengths to empower the region’s industry.
