Analyze from the theoretical point of view, the economic integration through trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) between Mexico and Cuba.

Apart from the numerous existing works on the most advanced integration processes worldwide, there are few theoretical studies in Latin America about schemes in their initial stages, which are developed on a smaller scale.


The current stage of trade links between Mexico and Cuba contains elements of a process of economic integration in its early stages, with clear differences with classical European models. The commercial relationship approaches a north-south pattern, due to the economic and productive differences of both countries. On the other hand, bilateral FDI has not yet been consolidated as a catalyst for economic collaboration.
