Real Estate & Construction
The real estate and infrastructure sectors in Colombia have grown significantly in recent years due to incentives for purchase of residential properties, the arrival of international players, strengthening of the infrastructure industry in different regions, the growth of intermediate-sized cities around the country, and an unprecedented road construction program launched by the Colombian Government known as the Fourth (4th) Generation Roads Program.
