Like other currencies in the region, such as the Brazilian real or the Mexican peso, the Colombian currency has also been one of the most appreciated in emerging markets.

Only in the first half of the year Colombian peso has achieved great appreciation driven in part by the weakening of the dollar globally, as the greenback has been affected by world events such as the Russian invasion of Ukraine and local economic decisions such as the measures the Federal Reserve has implemented to address inflation.
