TODAY COLOMBIA – Colombia’s Armed Forces are recognized for providing high levels of specialized training, and the recent course provided the benefit of their expertise to other countries.

Since 2010, more than 1,100 officers and sailors from 24 Latin American countries, including the navies of Belize, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Panama and Paraguay, have participated in training provided by the Colombian National Navy.

“In 2015, APC-Colombia plans to continue these kinds of initiatives with support from South-South Cooperation via the platform of the Regional Cooperation Program for Mesoamerica,” APC-Colombia reports.
