The Mesoamerica Project was created for Belize, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Dominican Republic in order to promote development and employment in the region. It includes 100 projects and has an investment of US$ 8 billions.
It is supposed to create a network of roads that will enable the countries concerned to trade with beneficial tariffs and commercial freedom.
However, in a comprehensive study, Chris Moyes argues that the Mesoamerica Project is simply an excuse for more neo-liberal policies, where the poor will the losers once again.
