Agriculture is one of the main pillars of the Colombian economy, accounting for 6.2% of the country’s GDP, 14.4% of national exports, 1.1% of total FDI inflow and 16.8% of the overall employment in 2015. Between 2010 and 2015, the gross value added (GVA) of the sector expanded at a CAGR of 3.5%, below the 4.6% average growth rate of the economy. The sector suffers chronic deficiencies in mechanisation and transport infrastructure, which hinder overall productivity. The unfavourable weather conditions caused by the El Niño phenomenon, especially in 2015 and 2016, affected main agriculture crops, such as coffee, palm oil and sugarcane. Nevertheless, the sector is gradually diversifying its products, supported by the government’s plan Colombia Siembra.
