The main cause for the growth was reportedly a 43.8% surge in the import of refined fuels and mining products, along with a 7.3% rise in manufactured goods.

A net producer of combustibles, Colombia’s internal production was hampered in September by industrial strikes and guerrilla attacks on infrastructure.
