The nation of Colombia registered remarkable economic growth during the past decade. The country's economy is estimated to reach US $451.6 billion at the current prices by 2017, with a CAGR of 5.3%. Colombia's economic growth is primarily driven by domestic demand under the influence of increasing middle class population, in addition to growing global demand.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, conducted a competitive analysis on this country and presents its findings in “Colombia Country Analysis 2012-2017: An Evaluation of Political, Social, Economic, and Business Risk.” This study provides a concise overview of the political, economic, social, technological, and business risk associated with the country.

Among the various challenges the country faces is a very high homicide rate. Drug trafficking is one of the major reasons for the high level of crime in Colombia.

Colombia registers high national literacy rate with ample enrolment in tertiary education, which shows the quality of higher education. The government is increasingly spending more on education.
