A Pacific Ocean gateway to Colombia

Article - July 28, 2011
Located in southwestern Colombia, the Department of Cauca Valley is one of the country’s most pristine places
While economic and social developments, growing companies, and the civil mindset of the residents all contribute to this region’s appeal, its geographic position is perhaps its most profound advantage. Located near the Pacific Ocean, Cauca Valley has the greatest potential to explode economically compared to its neighbors.

Francisco Jose Lourido, Governor of the Cauca Valley, is determined to help this region reach its fullest potential. “Reactivating production with social responsibility, improving the quality of education and health, generating employment with the development of new productive activities and transforming the export capacity of the region are only some of the goals the Valley is facing to put itself in the national export leader position that it deserves,” he stated in his article A Competitive Department: An Effort From Everyone.

Two substantial projects are currently in motion that will consolidate the Pacific Region and open up many doors to Cauca Valley and its agricultural and business economies.

The first is a new road that connects the south of the country to Buenaventura, one of the primary routes on the Pacific coast, that will reduce time and distance, becoming the most efficient road and way of importing and exporting goods.

The second project is a road to the Orinoquia Region, the eastern plains of Colombia, that could connect the port of southern Colombia to Venezuela in the future, opening up more possibilities for the economy to flourish. “These two ambitious projects will greatly impact the infrastructure of the national government and will without a doubt contribute to the strengthening of the department’s economy,” Mr. Lourido said about the road building.

With the help of these two roads, the consolidation of this region will ultimately see development of two more important projects: the Integral Plan and the Integral Education Plan.
