He shares the benefits of the city of Bogota and in particular, the Free Trade Zone, for companies looking to set up a Latin American base there.
"Bogota has scalability. With over 9 Million people there are a lot of people willing to find new jobs here. With 100 Universities, 800,000 students, 100,000 graduates a year - there is a lot of capability here", he tells us.
He also points out there is a low turnover rate; less than 5%. "Most of the people that work here also live around the Free Trade Zone. About 50% of the population is in the area"
When discussing the theme of the 13 Congreso ANDINO; BPO and technology, he says, "Technology is coming- it's not a threat; it's an opportunity. It gives us more knowledge overall. And it will get here sooner or later, so we are just preparing for the future."
Currently the zone is servicing both local and international companies. These companies see first-hand the benefits of the market size, the time zone, good connectivity, skilled workforce and also access to other cities.
And most importantly he tells us, "We still have available space for new companies."
