On the occasion of the 50th Annual Meeting of the Inter-American Development Bank in, of all places, Medellin, I was inspired to start a blog.
This major gathering of financial and political leaders from Latin America and around the world has brought together headliners like Bill Clinton, Timonthy Geitner, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and People’s Bank of China Governor Zhou Xiaochuan. It is fitting that this beautiful city that has worked so hard to modernize and bring peace should host such a major meeting. It is a testament to how far things have come, and what a wonderful place Medellin is.
Colombia today excites a lot of attention in the business community. The purpose of this blog is to provide an English language site to collect and increase the dissemination of information about commercial activity and investment in Colombia and related legal issues. The purpose is also to draw attention to the wonderful people of Medellin whose economic, social, and cultural development work is healing the violence of the past and ensuring a rich future in a beautiful land.
So please enjoy the material and add any suggestions for additional content or links that will help our readers.
