Overview, Office and Jobs

With slow access speeds from networks in Colombia, the fact that google.com.co is slower than average to load may be a negative issue. Otherwise the database is comprehensive, so research is a major use for this search engine. The main areas visitors access are search, translation, news, accounts and books.

Although Google announced late 2010 that they would be opening offices in Bogotá, Colombia in the near future, due to the upturn in security and economy, I have not, as yet, heard that this has been implemented.

No address, at present, available.

Republic of Colombia

Geomorphology and Geography

Colombia is situated in the north-west of the continent of South America, lying between latitude 0º (the equator) and 10º north. It has a coastlines on the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Coastal plains to the west are separated from tropical grasslands to the east, by the Andes. This mountain range splits into three ranges (the Cordilleras) in Colombia, and run north along the west coast, gradually disappearing towards the Caribbean Sea. 

Towards the Amazon river basin the vegetation changes to tropical forest.

The climates in Colombia include equatorial and tropical: influenced by altitude.

Bogotá is the capital.

Agriculture, mineral wealth and industry

Very little of the country is under cultivation although much of the soil is fertile.

The range of climates result in an extraordinary wealth and variety of crops: coffee being the most important.

Colombia is rich in minerals and produces about half of the world's emeralds.

It is South America's leading producer of coal.

Oil is gradually coming on tap: gold is mined in the east.

Exports include coffee and sugar, and there is a strong 'black' economy based on exports of illegal drugs.

The US and Colombian governments are spending billions of dollars fighting drug wars in Colombia. 

Maybe this money could be better spent paying the farmers a living wage to produce other crops.
