Colombian Economic Policies To Remain Investor-Friendly, Despite Electoral Uncertainty

While we believe Colombia's presidential election, which will be decided in a second round on June 15, is too close to call, we expect economic policies to remain investor-friendly under the next administration. The centre-right opposition candidate from the Centro Democrático, Óscar Iván Zuluaga, received 29.3% of the vote in the first round on May 25, followed by incumbent President Juan Manuel Santos with 25.7%. Both candidates have strong centre-right credentials and a pro-foreign investment track record, which will ensure Colombia remains an attractive investment destination in the years ahead. This podcast features Elijah Oliveros-Rosen, from BMI's Latin America Country Risk Team.
