Introduction: trends and change. Colombia?s population, estimated at 40.8 million, occupies an area of just over 1 million square kilometers. About one-quarter of the population lives in rural areas. Natural resources are plentiful, and include agricultural land, water for irrigation, energy resources (oil, natural gas, and coal), and minerals such as nickel, gold, and emeralds. Colombia has a significant advantage in terms of its location: it is close to North America with coasts on both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Mountainous terrain, however, makes internal transportation costly and slows physical and social integration. A wealth of physical resources, a literate and dependable work force, a robust private sector, competent macroeconomic management, and political stability are major factors that have explained Colombia?s good record of economic development and social improvements over the last 30 years. Nevertheless, the growth of the illegal drug industry in Colombia and the presence of active insurgent groups and the pressure of external shocks, have had an increasingly negative impact on the overall economic performance of the country.
