Prospectiva and Vali Consultores team-up to take on new challenges in Colombia

07/10/16
Prospectiva Consultoria

Prospectiva continues to expand in Latin America and consolidates itself as a leading partner for investors and corporations operating in the region. We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Vali Consultores, a leading policy and government relations consulting firm in Colombia.

Vali Consultores is part of a selective group of policy and government affairs firms which are setting new standards for business engagement with governments across Latin America. It is led by Angela María Orozco who was named as one of the 100 Young Leaders of the Future by the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in 2000. Prior to founding Vali Consultores and becoming its CEO, Angela served as Minister and Vice-Minister of Foreign Trade of Colombia, and was the President of the Export and Investment Promotion Office of Colombia-Proexport. The consultancy works with clients from different industries, including: healthcare, infrastructure, aerospace, mining, energy, trade, food and drinks, technology, and biotech.

Colombia is the third largest economy in South America. With a population of 47.2 million people, and an average GDP growth of 4.5% in the last 5 years, Colombia has been a shining star in a region plagued by political and economic instability. The country also boasts one of the most dynamic private sectors in the region and has been an aggressive promoter of free trade agreements.

 As Colombia’s importance grows to investors and corporations operating in that market, so does the complexity of the issues they face. The unresolved peace agreement with the FARC, governmental intrusion in key sectors, and the need to implement a fiscal reform are just some of the issues that will shape the policy/business landscape in Colombia in the months to come.

This partnership is part of a strategy through which Prospectiva seeks to raise the bar in terms of policy strategies that generate value for clients, while being fully compliant with the FCPA and other international anti-corruption legislation from across Latin America.

Our Miami office will be at the helm of our partnership with Vali and we will be happy to discuss the concerns your company may have in regards to your tailored needs, be it in Colombia, Brazil or the rest of the region.
