The Colorado Consular Corps is over 50 years old as an organization.  The number of countries which choose to have official representation in Colorado has grown significantly over the last ten years, as Colorado has become more linked to international business and global activities.  Ten years ago only Mexico had a "career" consulate in Colorado.  Today the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada and Peru, in addition to Mexico, have full-time professional consulates in the state.  The list of Honorary Consulates also has expanded, most recently with Morocco and Uganda establishing consulates.
