Abstract

Este documento examina si las instituciones y los organismos que tienen que ver con el sector externo de la economía colombiana apoyan o dificultan el comercio de importación y exportación. Los hallazgos de este trabajo se sustentan principalmente en el análisis de los resultados de la encuesta de comercio exterior aplicada por el Banco de la República a operadores de comercio exterior sobre la calidad de los organismos involucrados en el sector externo, de los servicios que prestan y de la infraestructura que soporta el comercio. Los resultados se contrastan con los indicadores que miden, a nivel mundial, el peso relativo de los problemas institucionales y de infraestructura y sirven como guía para analizar el funcionamiento institucional y regulatorio del sector en Colombia.
