Colombia's GDP has risen considerably in the last two decades,

from less than $50 billion in 1990 to nearly $288 billion in 2010, with an especially steep rise since 2003.

After all, when Americans thought about Colombia (if they did at all), the first things that likely came to mind were narco-terrorism and Pablo Escobar. They probably didn't think of a land of investment opportunity. But a lot has changed in the Latin American nation in recent years.

The government has made great strides toward combating the violence and kidnapping that made the country notoriously unsafe in the past few decades, and it has also made significant advances in weeding out institutional corruption.

Like other South American countries, Colombia is blessed with abundant natural resources. And with the fourth largest economy in Latin America, Colombia stands to gain handsomely from rising commodity prices worldwide.

Some of the country's main exports include oil, coal, coffee, and gold, and it is also the world's leading supplier of emeralds. Colombia and the U.S. have also recently finalized a free trade agreement, which should increase trade between the two countries.

The U.S. is currently Colombia's most important trade partner.
