How the trade agreement is helping:

The trade agreement with Colombia has gradually reduced tariffs for Kaeser's products, helping the German firm to expand into the market and its Colombian subsidiary to increase its market share. The tariffs will be at 0% in 2019.

The EU Trade Agreement with Colombia enabled the company to significantly improve sales in the growing Colombian market, as result of reduction of the import tariff. Thanks to the Agreement, KAESER products are now more competitive and the improved market access has helped the company to grow constantly in recent years.
