“The fourth quarter of 2022 had good results and Cali was able to position itself in labor matters, as the city with the highest occupancy rate in the country with 62%. But in addition, about 170,000 jobs were created in the city and that means that the city is reactivating,” said the president of the Cali Chamber of Commerce, Luis Fernando Pérez.
