About Jessica L. Bedoya
Global financial services firm Deloitte projects that the collective economies of Latin America will grow by 3.8 percent in 2022. Some countries, like Colombia, are expected to grow by as much as 5.8 percent. What’s going on down south?

Her efforts have led to investment growth of up to $1 billion in agriculture, infrastructure, and technology, key industries for the region.
