Latin America has developed within the patterns of the so-called Primary Export Model and its insertion in the international market has hindered its own cohesion and regional integration. Historical dependence on Washington’s post consensus neo-liberal models makes evident a model of structural peripheral marginalization.This open regionalism proposes a regional development model with strategies relying on endogenous resources and external markets initiatives within a political deconcentration and decentralization framework. The key to success for Latin America is to insert itself competitively in the international market with all its innate capabilities, leaving behind those technological, political and economic models of dependency.
