BETHESDA, Md. – February 28, 2019 –
Care Association and the American
Chamber of Commerce in Colombia will be hosting a free webinar
on business opportunities in the automotive industry in Colombia. The hour-long
webinar will take place on March 19, 2019 at 3 p.m. ET and will
provide participants with a country profile, market information, best business
prospects and information on the association’s upcoming trade mission to Colombia, June 5-6, 2019.
Colombia has emerged as a
highly-viable international business market for the automotive aftermarket. Under
the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, most auto parts enter the market tariff
free and tariffs on other parts will be reduced to zero over the next one to five
years. With 49 million inhabitants, Colombia is the fourth largest economy in
Latin America, and in contrast to most Latin American countries that have only
one or two major cities, Colombia has five commercial hubs. In addition, U.S.
exports to Colombia in 2017 were valued at USD $13.3 billion.
The complimentary webinar will feature
first-hand market insights from the American Chamber of Commerce in Colombia.
Participants will have the opportunity to raise questions and have their
specific interests addressed during the webinar.
Key topics to be discussed include:
- Doing business in Colombia – why and how;
- The automotive industry in Colombia – size and scope;
- The best prospects and opportunities existing for the
automotive aftermarket in Colombia; and
- Details on Auto Care Association’s trade mission to Colombia.
The webinar is open to all Auto Care
Association members and non-members. For more details about the webinar and to
