Slide 18

UN Assessment A fourth of a century on, option advancement benefactors specialists still think little of the socio-social, financial, political and ecological milieu in which elective improvement works, which welcomes doubtful desires and activities set to fizzle. It was realized that ranchers of illegal products accepting option advancement had been couple of: 23% in the Andes, 5% in Asia.

Slide 19

Afghanistan The difficulties of actualizing the option improvement program are overwhelming. Monetary development in Afghanistan is hampered by enormous framework deficiencies (particularly absence of electric power), a lack of talented human capital, weakness, defilement, feeble lawful and administrative administrations, and poor access to seaports, among different variables. The USG and different benefactors are tending to these basic issues, and much advance has been made, however given Afghanistan's extraordinarily low beginning stage, years of work stay with a specific end goal to fabricate a cutting edge and territorially focused Afghan economy.

On August 31, the CNP captured 50 claimed individuals from the developing narco-trafficking posse "Los 40," including 18 dynamic obligation police, two individuals from the Colombian Directorate of Administrative Security (DAS), a Colombian marine, and an individual from the Prosecutor General's investigative unit (CTI).

Mexico As a matter of arrangement, the GOM does not energize nor encourage the illegal creation or dissemination of opiate or psychotropic medications or some other controlled substances, nor the laundering of cash got from unlawful medication exchanges.
