Colombia – An Expatriates Paradise Found

There are many countries that deserve their poor reputation, and for decades Colombia was one of them. Narco-terrorism, human rights violations, and a host of other challenges have plagued it for years. Although there are still safety issues, as is the case with many emerging market locations, this South American nation of 50 million has become flexible and welcoming, eager to do business with foreign investors. This may lead one to question why companies still find it difficult to recruit employees for assignments here. Those who have been deployed to Colombia will probably agree that one of the hardest parts is leaving.
