Export Development Opportunities in Colombia Workshop

With the support of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, The Maritimes Energy Association recently completed an Exploratory Business Development Expedition to Barranquilla, Colombia on behalf of the Atlantic Canadian energy industry.

There is a rapidly accelerating offshore sector and with its Deep Water Port and investment in infrastructure, Barranquilla, as a member of the World Energy Cities Partnership, is positioning itself as the Energy Capital of Colombia. The current local offshore supply chain is underdeveloped and presents significant opportunity for Atlantic Canadian expertise to enter the growing market.

This workshop will cover:

Confirmed Speakers:

Mike Howley, Account Manager, ACOA - Introduction

Juan David Gomez, Canadian Trade Commissioner – Oil and Gas and Renewables in Colombia

David Nygaard, Global Trade Director, Energy, EDC Canada - Support available from EDC relating to Colombia

Camilo Morales, City of Barranquilla - Colombia’s Energy Capital

Neil McIntosh, AIA - overview of scoping session and opportunities identified

Law Firm Brigard Urrutia – Legal and Tax Framework in Colombia

Isabella Bolivar Schembri, Zofia – Free Trade Zones in Colombia

Peter Konings, Survival Systems Training – their experience of Colombia

A full agenda with speakers will be posted shortly. Register your interest today!
