We’ve had an exciting and very productive first day in Colombia. After a long journey, there was no time for rest as we made our way to meet with Simon Ford, British Honorary Consul in Cali. He was extremely helpful, putting us into contact with a number of different companies and individuals who might be able to assist us. One of these companies was EMCALI, the city’s leading energy provider. We were very fortunate to meet with Ana Meneses and Luis Felipe Bryon at their headquarters. This was a great opportunity to discuss the social and economic issues facing development in the city and gain a better understanding of Cali’s culture.
