  • María Angélica Ducci
Chapter

Abstract

As Latin American countries enter the 21st century, their development strategy is becoming centered around two major challenges: on the one hand, to improve their competitiveness in a globalized economy; on the other, to consolidate and heighten equity and social cohesion. The key development issue is, therefore, to reconcile economic and social concerns at the national level, within a new international context.1
