Our territory has made enormous efforts to create an environment conducive to business and investment. The local institutions, mainly the Mayor of Pereira, the Government of Risaralda and the Chamber of Commerce of Pereira have managed to reduce the process of creating a company to 3 hours, thanks to which the Business Attention Center of the Chamber of Commerce has been cataloged as the best in Colombia by the IDB.

In the same way, the benefits of the territory have been highlighted by different international rankings. One of them is the Doing Business, carried out by the World Bank, which classifies Colombia as the second most propitious country to do business in Latin America. Likewise, said ranking has been carried out within the country, comparing the business environment of the cities of Colombia, which it was found that Pereira is the first city with greater efficiency for the “creation of a company” and the second more conducive “To do business.”

On the other hand, the FDI, ranked by the Financial Times, has ranked Pereira in the Top Ten in the categories of “cost effectiveness” and “investment attraction strategy”, in a measurement that compares all cities of medium size from the American continent.
