  6. 6. [6] Why Colombia? • Colombia is considered to be among the worlds most desirable destinations for mineral exploration and development, as it is rated 1st globally in terms of geologic potential. • It is the most secure Latin American country to business , and has the 2nd best investor protection in Latin America . • Colombia is ranked 3rd in South America for "Policy Potential" , which measures the effects of government policies on exploration, including mining codes, taxation, security, political security and infrastructure. • Has a stable democracy with a 98% Presidential approval rating, as the U Party was elected for its third term in 2010. • Since the 2002 election of President Alvaro Uribe, Colombia has experienced huge improvements in security conditions, and civil unrest no longer prevents exploration of the area. • By 2012 around US$8.8 billion in self-funded infrastructural projects have been completed in Colombia, and it is now the 5th largest economy in Latin America.
