Since the 1980s, with the return to democracy, many South American countries began processes of regional economic and commercial reforms and integration. Among them, MERCOSUR established a commitment to create a common market, similar to the European Union. Other countries advanced in less ambitious projects, such as unilateral trade openings or the conformation of free trade zones. After 30 years, it is worth analyzing the result of these initiatives in a dynamic and unpredictable world.
