BOGOTA, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said Thursday if the peace process with the rebel Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrilla group becomes successful, the economic growth of the country will be promoted.


According to official figures, Colombia witnessed 5.9 percent of economic growth in 2011 and it is projected that the country's economic growth will stand at 4.6 percent in 2012.

Santos also said while the rest of the world is struggling with the economic recovery, his country is going forward with a good rhythm.

"We have an advantageous situation before the rest of the world which is going through a very difficult situation," he said.

just read on another thread here a falsehood that Colombia was doing poorly economically.

1. The thread you (and I) read is just one more

chapter in the long-running diatribe named "Fire Bad - Colombia Bad". Glad to see that the Colombian economy seems to continue to do well. It's a wonderful country with marvellous people who have endured almost fifty years of bloody armed conflict.
