According to UNESCO, the cultural sector in Colombia contributes to the GDP with 3.41% of the total. The population that has an occupation related to this sector is 2.1%. Comparing it with the GDP contribution of other industries such as transportation (3.21%) and construction (3.20%), cultures has become extremely important.

Culture’s role in development has been recognized by the government and integrated into National Development Plans. Colombian authorities have taken efforts to generate an all-inclusive policy to promote the culture sector as a fundamental part of development.

Nowadays there is significant demand of foreign and domestic cultural goods, services, and activities.

The cultural activities to which we refer range from visits to cultural venues, concerts, theatres, music festivals, television, cinema, radio, advertising, musical and artistic activities, art, design, museums, libraries, architecture, and historical and archaeological monuments. All this has made Colombia reach a highly evolved cultural environment, while maintaining an increase in the demand for culture.

Culture is so important for the economy that the Colombian government has developed and promoted a crucial Cultural Tourism.

Colombia arouses great interest to foreign travelers: it has 9 destinations named Material Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, has significant gastronomic tourism, is known for being the country of a thousand rhythms for its wide musical diversity, and has 17 towns proclaimed as Colombian Heritage that highlight the architecture, customs, and history of the regions. All this represents an important opportunity for the cultural and cultural tourism sectors.
