End of armed conflict 'will boost Colombia GDP'

Thursday, July 7, 2016

Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos said that the national economy could grow an extra percentage point per year if the country’s 52-year-old armed conflict comes to an end.

Santos has been negotiating peace with the FARC and the ELN, two guerrilla groups that have fought the state since 1964.
