This third minimum proposal describes a National Fund for the end of conflict, reconciliation and peace-building. This Fund will be endorsed by the Constitution and it will have a minimum duration of ten years.
The annual amount will have to be at least equivalent to 4 percentage points GDP and it will be defined making a cost-benefit evaluation of the implications of peace for the economy of the country. Other sources of income for the Fund will be a part from what is currently being destined for Defense, between 1.5 and 2 per cent of GDP, the elimination of all tax exemptions for big capital, a special contribution paid by national and foreign capital, a special contribution paid by big companies for the extraction of mining and energy resources, among others.
The Fund would also have to be financed with resources from the international community, especially the so-called ?military aid? from the United States of America should be destined as a whole to this new Fund.
An ad hoc Commission would have to be created to provide technical support for the Fund, according to the guerrilla spokesman. And, last but not least, the Fund wil be monitored by the National Commission of the Plan. Also, a citizen monitoring mechanism will be created.
This is the third proposal out of ten minimum proposals called "Ten minimum proposals to guarantee the end of conflict, national reconciliation and the construction of a stable and lasting peace".
