Site Selection Magazine released its Top Investment Promotion Agencies 2019 ranking this week, where Invest in Bogota was selected as the best regional agency in South America for the fifth year in a row together with Invest Pacific, Valle del Cauca’s investment promotion agency.

According to Site Selection Magazine, the ranking recognizes the relevance of these agencies in the economic and social development of the countries and cities they promote. The publication selected the winning agencies after conducting 1,000 surveys with international experts that assessed factors such as most professional responses to inquiries, the staff’s knowledge and language diversity, best reputation for protecting investor confidentiality and after-care services, and the ease of access to the information provided through direct channels and websites.

“This is the result of the work we do every day at Invest in Bogota to bring in the best investments that can contribute to the improvement of the population’s quality of life and that allow more companies to see the capital as the gateway to Latin America,” said Juan Gabriel Pérez (photo), Executive Director of Invest in Bogota, who added that the agency had facilitated 43 investment projects representing a combined investment of USD 258 million.

ProColombia was also included in the ranking as South America’s top national agency. Agencies from Singapore, Germany, Portugal, Dubai, Hungary, Egypt, and South Africa also received awards.
