WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, the Colombian government and FARC announced a comprehensive peace agreement to end decades of conflict. The deal includes agreements on landmine removal, land reform, transitional justice and the end of illegal drug trafficking.
"Investment and growth could increase over the medium term, as areas that were formerly in conflict zones attract investment in mining and agriculture," the release stated.
The agency noted that Colombia will need to rebuild its revenue base in the near term to accommodate investment without jeopardizing fiscal consolidation.
FARC was formed in 1964 as the military wing of Colombia's Communist Party.
