Colombia's FDI: More hard rock mining than O&G....

....and that really surprised me. Take a look yourself at the numbers your humble scribe found while rottling around the Colombia Cenbank page late last night*.

In the last four recorded quarters Mining FDI comes to $2.799Bn, Petroleum FDI has totalled U$2.278Bn, and all other FDI lumped together (which according to the Colombia Central Bank list includes agriculture, fishing, manufacturing, electricity, gas, water, construction, commerce, restaurants, hotels, transport, warehousing, communications and finance....whew, pause for breath) totalled $1.164Bn.

Follow the money.
