The Andean Reserve Fund (FAR) was created in 1978 as a Regional Financing Arrangement (RFA), in response to the needs of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela to have their own financial institution, to address the problems resulting from the imbalances in the external sector of their economies and to facilitate the regional integration process. It became the second oldest RFA in the world.
In 1989, based on the solid foundations of a fully operating body, FAR became the Latin American Reserve Fund (FLAR) due to the interest of the Andean countries in expanding the Andean Reserve Fund (FAR) to all Latin America. Thus, Costa Rica, Uruguay and Paraguay adhered as FLAR member countries in 2000, 2009 and 2015, respectively.
