Extractive industries, particularly petroleum products, dominated Colombian exports last year once again, this time with $24.7 billion, up from $21 billion in 2017.

Manufacturing exports reached $8.3 billion, up from $7.7 billion in 2017. Food, drinks and farm produce stayed at $7.3 billion, down by 0.7 percent, mainly because of the drop in international coffee prices.

Total exports last year came fo $41.8 billion, a 10.4 percent increase, according to the official statistics office, DANE.
