From the moment Colombia began to gradually resume its economic and productive activities in April, under the protocols established by the Ministry of Health, the automotive and construction sectors have achieved significant results.
Housing development achieved great results in June, proving that it is a valuable instrument to boost investment and create jobs, and that the sector will play a key role in the country's economy in the upcoming months.
Thus, during the first week of gradual reactivation, nearly 3,840 companies in the manufacturing sector obtained validation for their biosecurity protocols. When combined with construction companies, the total of companies that have restarted operations surpasses 8,400.
Approximately one million workers in the construction and manufacturing sectors left confinement for the first time to begin work, and in Bogotá 152 building sites received approval to begin operations.
