Colombia's drive towards economic prosperity, which was stifled by
internal insurgencies from FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia)
and ELN (National Liberation Army), is steadily returning to normalcy.
The country successfully ended a five decade old conflict with FARC
rebels in 2017; the justice deal between FARC and the government will
alleviate pressure from the country.

The reasons behind the rise of military expenditure are the threats from
Venezuela over political issues, internal insurgencies rising in the
rebel forces, and the ongoing fight against drug trafficking. Increased

it is expected to allocate an average of 4.6% of its total defense
budget to capital expenditure and the remaining 95.4% for revenue
expenses. The share of capital expenditure is expected to decrease to an
average of 3.3% of the country's defense budget over the forecast
period, with the remaining 96.7% being allocated to operating
expenditure or revenue expenditure.
