Summary:

The Colombian economy is at a turning point, recovering from the large oil price shock of 2015?16 that put a break on high growth, pushed up inflation, and widened the current account deficit. A very strong policy framework and well-executed policies, including a tax reform, narrowed external imbalances and laid the foundations for an economic recovery. Growth picked up in 2017H2 and inflation has been hovering around the top of the target band.
