President

I am thrill to be part of PorColombia.

 

The connections and opportunities this organization has created for many Colombians abroad are unique. It is extremely valuable to meet other fellow Colombians who are excelling in a variety of fields throughout the United States.

 

 Without a doubt some of PorColombia assets are its professional capital, and networking capabilities. These factors make this organization unique and help to create strong ties for all Colombians.

 

Colombia has outstanding representatives abroad. Undoubtedly, the most efficient way to connect them is through the PorColombia network. We keep on bringing together our students and professionals nationwide.

VIVA COLOMBIA!
