Colombia's Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (Mintic) will be requiring all digital platforms to include a section on their interfaces for 'Made in Colombia' content, reports NexTV LatAm. The move was announced by ICT Minister Sylvia Constain at an industry event, with all interested parties invited to comment on the corresponding draft decree by 27 March. The goal is to make Colombian productions more visible on VoD platforms rather than imposing any minimum national content quotas, said the ministry.
