US envoy backs Uber over Colombia dispute

Wednesday, February 5, 2020

The United States’ ambassador implied Tuesday that ride-hailing app Uber’s recent departure from Colombia could negatively affect foreign investment in the country.

Speaking at the American Chamber of Commerce in Bogota, Philip Goldberg said he was concerned that “an American company is forced to cease operations while other competitors continue to operate apparently with the same business model,” according to Colombia reports.
