Regional self-determination in mexico: Soconusco 2002 strategic plan

World Futures 59 (8):591 – 596 (2003)
In the last decades, Mexican government applied traditional economic policies to overcome underdevelopment and to face the recurrent economic crisis. As a result, macroeconomic indicators show an acceptable economic performance, however, half of population is considered poor. One of the poorest region is Soconusco in the southern state of Chiapas. The Soconusco Strategic Plan 2020 proposes development strategies based on the regional characteristics. As a precondition for these strategies to work, a knowledge based platform has to be built. As suggested by the evolutionary view of economic theory, knowledge, as an input in the creation of capabilities, can be a useful tool to promote development.
