On June 19, Colombians elected Gustavo Petro as their president for 2022-2026. This is a relevant change for the country. First, he is the first leftist president who generates uncertainty. However, moderation of his policies is expected since he does not have majorities in Congress, and he made many alliances with the political center during his campaign.
On the other hand, the economy has shown important signs of recovery, which is why the growth forecast is updated to 8.5% for 2022.
