Maria Consuelo Araujo, CEO of Gran Colombia Gold Corp

Ms. Araujo gives an encouraging report on the Colombian economy in this 6 minute interview from last Friday.  Colombia is experiencing solid economic growth.  Why?  Because unlike its neighbor, Venezuela, Colombia is pursuing free market economic policies.

Maria is experienced, articulate, very competent and speaks excellent English.  We need more women CEOs in business.  Towards the end of the interview, Daniela asks if Maria will one day be the first woman president of Colombia.  That may be one day.

A very dynamic world, and it is a full time job to stay informed of what is going on.
