Colombia´s recovery efforts include 49 tourism infrastructure projects to attract $288 mn in private investment

Tourism in Colombia had been experiencing positive growth rates in recent years, before the pandemic brought the industry to a halt. While in 2019 a record of 4.5 million non-resident visitors was achieved and hotel occupancy was 57.8%, the results of the sector in 2020 were almost nil. In this sense, within the National Government’s reactivation plan, ‘Compromiso por Colombia’, 49 tourism infrastructure projects were included, with the aim of generating about 4,000 jobs and attracting at least $ 288 million in private investment.
