– First of them it is basically oriented to obtain the fortification of the military institution, anticipating for it the increase of the military units in all the Country. It also looks for to optimize the processes of qualification and preparation of the regular troops and to increase the one of the battalions of reservists. Additionally it inquires the possibility especially of determining possible theaters of operations in the different regions from the Country in the border zones with Colombia and Guyana. It also has as objective the impulse of the processes of recovery, renovation and update of the arms and equipment for the different branches from the FAN, processes that are marked by the technological advance in the acquired material. The doctrinal aspect has anticipated the establishment of new norms and directives that reconstruct the military activity based on a preventive and essentially dissuasive scheme, driven through a process of ideological reconversion of the officer corpses and sergeant major, initiate in the centers of military and continued formation in the bodies battle, establishing in this way a particular notion of the concept of integral defense.
