BMI View: A combination of a weakening peso and the likelihood of further interest rate rises in H116 both
pose significant challenges to Colombia's new vehicle sales market in 2016. We are targeting a 3% increase
in sales, with commercial vehicles set to outperform p ..."
BMI View: Despite a subdued outlook for Colombia's economy, we expect steady increases in agricultural
output will ensure tepid growth in freight volumes in the coming years. We caution that a more robust
expansion will be prevented by a slowdown in the consumer secto ..."
BMI View: The healthy level of growth seen at Colombia's main ports in 2015 is a trend we anticipate to
continue over not only the short but medium term. Short-term growth will be stymied slightly, however, by
slowing growth in Colombia, which will affect domestic dem ..."
BMI View: The strong growth registered across Colombia's main ports in 2014 is set to continue over the
course of 2015. The largest port in the country at Cartagena is set to see the largest rate of year-on-year (yo-

BMI forecasts vehicle sales in Colombia to increase 6% in 2014 on the back of steady improvements in the
economy and low base effects from declining sales in 2013. We expect this positive momentum to continue
into 2015, predicting another year of 6% growth. In terms of Colombia ..."
Growth across the Colombian freight mix is set to remain relatively strong in 2015. This trend follows the
news that Colombia's real GDP growth is poised for a robust expansion in the coming quarters, though
cooling slightly from the 5.4% year-on-year (y-o-y) growth recorded in ..."
BMI forecasts growth across the board at Colombian ports in 2015. Shipping sector growth over the
medium term will be supported by growth in private consumption on the back of rising wages and the
opening of the expanded Panama Canal, which would see more, and larger, vessels c ..."
BMI forecasts growth across the board at Colombian ports in 2014. This will, in part, be due to base effects,
as most facilities endured a downturn in volumes in 2013. Shipping sector growth over the medium term
will be supported by growth in private consumption on th ..."
