Bogota-Cundinamarca has positioned itself in the national context as the most important economic region in Colombia. Likewise, Cundinamarca is the main strategic partner of Bogotá, due to its strategic proximity and for being the main food supplier of the country's capital. Cundinamarca is administratively organized into 15 provinces made up of 116 municipalities. Eight provinces made up of 59 municipalities are part of the jurisdiction of the Bogota Chamber of Commerce, some of which are larger in population and number of companies than some of the country's major cities. For example, the province of Soacha has 427,380 inhabitants and 4,913 companies, while the population of cities such as Pereira and Santa Marta is 424,230 inhabitants and 413,006 inhabitants respectively. Currently, the CCB has coverage in Bogotá D. C., and 59 municipalities that are grouped into eight provinces: Almeidas, Guavio, Medina, Oriente, Sabana Centro, Soacha, Sumapaz and Ubaté.
