Future of the Colombian Defense Industry

Colombia’s drive towards economic prosperity has been stifled by internal insurgencies resulting from groups such as FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) and ELN (National Liberation Army). The country is facing a five decade old conflict with FARC rebels and is likely to be alleviated with the justice deal between FARC and the government. However, there is an increasing threat posed by the criminal gangs vying for the control of the country’s lucrative drug production. Also, Colombia’s relationship with neighbouring Venezuela has been strained owing to the issues like border disputes and infiltration of rebels. These factors are expected to drive the defense spending of the nation with a substantial allocation for procurement of military equipment

Key Findings
