Can you describe the benefits of your FTZ?
The International FTZ of Pereira is located in the centre of the ´Gold triangle´ (formed by Bogota, Medellin and Cali) of Colombia. 56% of the national population and 76% of GDP are from these cities. Equidistant from the main national consumer centres and the main Colombian port in the Pacific Ocean. Because of this we are able to access both national and international markets.
We support the whole process of qualification and joining the FTZ starting with the operation process, paperwork, licence, aspects such as environment and security. Also we support applicants in the selection of the workforce as we have a big database of qualified and non-qualified workers from which the companies can choose.
We have 3km of internal roads with high specifications for heavy traffic that are between 10-17 metres wide. There are cycle lanes throughout the FTZ.
We provide an electrical service through our private network with 33,000KV, it was installed exclusively for the FTZ so we can manage it to provide constant power to the FTZ.
