Abstract:Arguing that both Latin America and Africa are underdeveloped and that, despite variations, they are essentially in the same position, the present author proposes coordinated efforts aimed at solving the problems facing the two continents. He identifies two types of interrelated problems: those emanating from the position of both continents in the world capitalist system, and those emanating from their internal socioeconomic setups (retrogressive class structures, crisis in management, and failure to use the existing resources for development). The author also pays attention to the present state of affairs in the relationship between African and Latin America, and to the struggles aimed at resolving the contradictions existing in the two continents, and he discusses possible areas where cooperation could be strengthened.
