VI. Illustrative Example of Significant Achievement

Illustrative Example

Andean Counterdrug Initiative

Building on the record year 2002, when the aggressive U.S. supported aerial eradication program in Colombia reduced coca cultivation by more than 15 percent and opium poppy cultivation by 25 percent, the 2003 aerial eradication program continued at an unprecedented rate by spraying more than 124,000 hectares of coca and 2,500 hectares of opium poppy by the end of November. Since the beginning of the Uribe Administration in August 2002, Columbia has extradited 68 Colombian nationals to the U.S. primarily on narcotics or money-laundering charges. Completion of a new agreement with Colombia to resume the Air Bridge Denial program added an important weapon to the counterdrug campaign. Negotiations with Peru to establish a similar program there got underway. Meanwhile, coca cultivation in Peru declined 15 percent in 2003. Bolivia continues a strong forced coca eradication program in the Chapare, where it is expected to eradicate around 10,000 hectares in 2003, and has doubled the 2002 rate of interdiction of drugs and precursor chemicals.
