This Review of Agricultural Policies: Colombia is one of a series of reviews of national agricultural policies undertaken by the OECD’s Committee for Agriculture. On 29 May 2013, the OECD Council decided to open accession discussions with Colombia. On 19 September 2013, the Council adopted a Roadmap for the Accession of Colombia to the OECD Convention [C(2013)110/FINAL] (hereafter “the Roadmap”) setting out the terms, conditions and process for accession. The Roadmap provides that in order to allow the OECD Council to take an informed decision, Colombia will undergo in-depth reviews by the relevant OECD technical committees, including the Committee for Agriculture, which will then provide the Council with a formal opinion evaluating Colombia's willingness and ability to implement OECD legal instruments, and assessing Colombia’s policies and practices as compared to OECD best policies and practices.
