Although the parties ecosystem is wide and diverse, each font answers to the logical action of APC-­Colombia, wich is divided in two categories:

  • The first one refers to private sector, know as well as the second sector which the part of the economy responsible for making profit of their activity and it is not controlled by the State. This is an important stakeholder with an important presence and influence in the development of the country, due to its capability to generate wealth, job opportunities and social welfare.
  • The second one is the civil society, well known as third sector. It´s formed by non-benefit organisations, social foundations, as well as academy, cooperatives, solidarity-based enterprises; which complete the public actions with social purposes.
