With steady GDP growth, political stability and the best healthcare system in Latin America, Colombia’s life sciences industry has all the ingredients for success laid out before it. Indeed, with the domestic pharmaceutical market set to grow at a rate of around 7.3 percent and reach a USD 7.1 billion valuation by 2020, coupled with a booming medical device market set to reach USD 1.8 billion in the same time frame, Colombia is carving out a name for itself as the new place to be.
