The Regional Commission on Competitiveness (CRC) operates as a space for public - private connections to improve the competitiveness of the Region
Since 2001, the CRC of Bogotá and Cundinamarca has operated continuously through a memorandum of understanding as a space for public - private negotiations to promote an enabling environment for the sustainable generation of wealth and increasing quality of life for its inhabitants. The efforts to bridge the public and the private began in 2001 with the creation of the Regional Council on Competitiveness, today known as the Commission, under the framework of the National Competitiveness System.
This process of concerted work has been strengthened by engaging technical and financial efforts among the public, business and academic sectors in the region to carry out projects to improve the business environment on matters of internationalization, innovation, productive chains, business development, sustainable development and infrastructure.
Currently, the CRC in Bogotá and Cundinamarca is in the process of strengthening its conceptual and organizational structure, to allow the Region to have a space for public - private engagement, with the capacity to create, structure, and carry out projects that boost the region's competitiveness, innovation and sustainable development.

Initiatives that allow for improving the business environment for Clusters
Through dialogue with strategic public and private entities and actors on the national, departmental and district level, we support clusters to identify possible areas for improving the clusters, through proposals for policy adjustments, the creation of support instruments for the national, departmental or district governments, public policy proposals, invitations and places for analyzing and communicating strategic issues, and others.
We also promote the identification of actors, programs and strategic action lines defined by public entities and by the academy, that may contribute to the improvement of the clusters environment.
