Colombia has made good economic and social progress over the last two decades. Macroeconomic
policies are solid and have sustained growth and smooth adjustments to shocks over
the years. Maintaining and strengthening the policy framework is key to sustainable
macroeconomic policies and setting the basis for higher productivity and inclusiveness.
Putting Colombia on a path to stronger and more inclusive growth, and reducing dependence
on natural resources, requires boosting productivity by adopting structural reforms
in competition, regulations, trade policy, infrastructure, innovation, and skills.
Reducing informality and boosting job-quality would extend the benefits of growth
to all Colombians, underpinning economic and political support for reform. SPECIAL
