Fast Market Research recommends "Colombia Infrastructure Report Q1 2015" from Business Monitor International, now available


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2015 -- We maintain our positive view of the Colombian construction industry through 2015 and forecast solid real growth of 10.8% in industry value. Our bullish outlook for the country is supported by new government policies to improve the business environment, a strengthening PPP framework, and more diversified sources of project finance.

Key Trends And Developments

- With continued strong backing from the Colombian government for the sector, we maintain our outlook of a healthy annual average real construction growth of 8.2% between 2015 and 2020.

Improved access to ports and adequate highways will be essential if the country is to meet the expected increase in exports.

- New rules regulating tax changes, force majeure, land expropriation, and environmental permits will significantly reduce the risk of investing in Colombia's ambitious road infrastructure programme. These measures will facilitate access to financing and will also strengthen the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model in the country.
