Earlier this month, on August 7, 2022, the country of Colombia in South America inaugurated two, new, political leaders; namely, Mr. Gustavo Petro as President of the country, and Ms. Francia Marquez as the new Vice President. Further, as a descendant of Africa, Vice President Marquez is the first African Colombian (Afro-Colombian) to attain the high-level position within her country. Chosen by President Petro to be his running mate, Vice President Marquez is a human rights and environmental activist as well as an Attorney.

We must monitor the hopeful progress that Colombia and Colombians shall make under their new leadership. Even more, many domestic and international stakeholders, including members of the business community have significant opportunities to assist President Gustavo and Vice President Marquez with their goals; that is, bringing forth peace, racial equality, human security for all social leaders, and much more positives in Colombia.
