Colombia Agribusiness Report Q4 2015 - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Sep 23 2015

Colombia's agribusiness sector is being held back by a number of deep structural challenges - including the lingering consequences of the internal armed conflict, structural inefficiencies and a low competitiveness and poor policy choices - which are behind the stagnation in area cultivated and in yields over the past decade. But after several decades of disappointing growth in Colombia's agribusiness sector, the outlook for production and exports is brightening. The efforts made to resolve the conflict, coupled with the potential for upcoming agricultural reforms , pave s the way for the revival of Colombia's agribusiness. The coffee, fruits, sugar, palm oil and horticulture sectors offer the best opportunities. Colombian agriculture enjoys a large diversity thanks to abundant natural resources and diverse climates and topography. A lthough FTAs may undermine the livestock and dairy sectors, they also provide Colombia with large export markets. The US and EU, which are the main markets for Colombian agricultural products, will see their imports grow in the coming years with the decrease in tariffs.
