This week Invest Pacific accompanied a delegation of 15 Austrian entrepreneurs that arrived in the city to see the competitive advantages of our region. The interest of this visit began back in the month of November with the familiarization trip organized by Invest Pacific with the presence of the Austrian ambassador.
The agenda started with a tour around the facilities of CIAT, International Center of Tropical Agriculture located in Palmira, Valle del Cauca, there the entrepreneurs were able to see the conservation processes implemented with cassava, beans and forage. They also were introduced to the plans carried out to protect the world’s biodiversity with a seed bank.
After that visit we went to MM-Packaging and Austrian company installed in the region, focused on design and package printing services. And finally, we went to the Free Trade Zone Parque sur, were the HeroCorp plant is located.
This mission was created with the purpose of contributing to position Valle del Cauca as the ideal department for foreign investment. The underlying idea of these visits was to show the reasons on why to invest in the region, like for example its geostrategic location, world class entrepreneurship, its solid infrastructure and connectivity, qualified human talent, quality of life and competitive prices.
This visit of Austrian entrepreneurs was a great example on how attractive and interesting the department of Valle del Cauca is. It is expected for more delegations to continue arriving from other countries to our region.
