BT announced a stronger focus on growth opportunities in Colombia through the launch of new services, the opening of a new centre of excellence in Bogota and new social responsibility initiatives to help bridge the digital divide in the country.
The BT Global Services leadership team, led by CEO Jeff Kelly, is currently visiting the country, meeting global and local business leaders as well as Colombian Government Ministers and other officials.
Diego Molano Vega, Minister of Communications and Information Technologies of Colombia, said: “We are very optimistic about the new opportunities that BT can bring to Colombia. This Government is bringing Internet to the most disadvantaged and to the remote areas as a wonderful tool to reduce poverty and generate employment.”
