Colombia has a strong economy that has been growing over the last decade, and even though global commodity prices are higher, Colombia is still a major grain importer because its economy is growing and its currency is strong, said Jaime Rueda, CEO of Escala, a poultry company, at the Export Exchange 2012 last week. "With our strong currency, consumption is still going up because the Colombian people have more purchasing power," Mr Rueda said.
