Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


Following one of the most consequential elections in Colombia’s modern history, the right-wing technocrat, Iván Duque, was elected as the nation’s 33rd president. Duque ran an ambitious campaign promising to revive sluggish growth, revise the peace accord with the FARC rebel group, and diversify the oil-reliant economy. However, the administration has inherited a long list of challenges and fragmented congressional power that will create major obstacles and limits to achieving these objectives. Duque’s administration is expected to have moderate success reviving growth through business-friendly reforms, but many of the gravest challenges will require ongoing political commitment beyond the president’s term. Ultimately, Duque’s presidency holds key implications for the future of Colombia’s economic performance and business opportunities, both in the short and long terms.
