An international business development resource for firms in Newfoundland and Labrador

Atlantic Canada – Colombia Market Entry Project

Virtual Oil & Gas Trade Mission to Colombia
April 13th – 14th, 2021

Join us on this virtual mission that is open to all companies and industry organizations from Atlantic Canada that are interested in learning about the business landscape in Colombia and opportunities to support the Oil and Gas sector.

The program will take place via two separate webinars (two hours per day) and will provide information on current and future projects, an overview of key stakeholders in Colombia, plans for development of the energy sector, considerations for doing business in the country and introductions to business support organizations that are seeking to develop partnerships between local companies and the international supply chain.

This is a great opportunity to undertake some market research at no cost prior to considering whether to participate in future trade missions and related activity.

Contributors from Colombia may include:

  • Ecopetrol
  • IOCs and Service Companies
  • Ports
  • Local Supply Chain
  • Industry Associations
  • Energy Clusters
  • Inward Investment Agencies
  • Legal/Tax/Accounting firms
  • City of Barranquilla
  • Canadian Trade Commissioner Service
  • Colombian Ministry of Mines and Energy


Organizations that are ‘export ready’ and would like to look at the market in more depth can sign-up for a program of matchmaking services that will enable Canadian firms to benefit from introductions and meetings to promote their products and/or service offering to potential clients and partners in Colombia.

Introductions will take place in late April following the virtual trade mission program and there will be a $300 fee to participate in this element.


Matchmaking: apply by Friday, March 26th with places confirmed to successful companies by Friday, April 2nd.

Virtual Mission: registration via email is open until Wednesday, April 7th.
