Bogota, above Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. Medellin and Cali moved 13 and 10 seats.

The Colombian capital ranked fifth among the 48 Latin American cities most attractive for investment, while five major urban centers Colombians entered the top 30 of that list.

The scale was developed by the Center for Competitive Thinking Strategies (Cepec) at the University of Rosario, in partnership with the Business Intelligence Agency of Chile and is done for the fifth time, thereby allowing that Medellin rose 12 places, to placed in the step 13 and Cali rose 10 places, which helped them get into the top 20.

Meanwhile, Barranquilla was in box 27, which means he won two positions with respect to the measurement year, and Bucaramanga up one place, which led to the box 28.

Bogota remained in fifth place for a second year (at this level came in 2012), after being in the ninth.

As the authors note the ladder, Saul Pineda of Colombia, Rodrigo Diaz of Chile, "investors love a country open to the world. A good national platform drives the regions. Those who bring in the money and drive the development of a country are also interested to know that a country is well managed politically, purchasing power, gross domestic product (GDP) per capita and how much cities grow, "say the researchers .

Several of these conditions were fulfilled in the cities of Colombia, where "we have a dynamic economic growth, reduction of insecurity and 11 universities that are present with quality educational opportunities, among the top 200 in the world," the authors added ladder.

In the case of climbing that managed the Colombian capital, analysts argue that free trade agreements with the United States had much to do.

In the first measurement locations within were located, Santiago, Chile, followed by Sao Paulo (Brazil), Mexico City, and in the fourth, Lima (Peru)."It does not mean that these cities will have more investment, but have every opportunity to capture more investors," said Chilean researcher.

With respect to Panama, from which daily we hear good news in the economy, the capital of this country ranked eighth in the ranks, protected by high financial capacity and good strategic location for trade.

Instead, the Argentine cities lost momentum, except for Buenos Aires, the capital, which ranked 10.

Medellin and Cali
