In brief

Historically relied on as an anti-cyclic economic boost, infrastructure development has found a renewed role in reactivating the Colombian economy recently affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Colombian government’s launch of the 5G concession program sets forth an opportunity to reactive the Colombian economy. This new program comprises approximately 22 projects, and, according to the National Infrastructure Agency (Agencia Nacional de Infraestructura or ANI), the agency in charge of structuring, awarding and supervising national concession projects, the 5G concession program will entail investments close to USD17.3 billion.
