Chavez and Uribe, Presidents of Venezuela and Colombia met to start a new phase of relationship between both republics.

This time they have signed collaboration agreements scientific, agricultural and energy with the Brazilian commitment to transfer technology to Venezuela. Cristina Fernandez, President of Argentina, has also signed agreements with Venezuela and ratified the common position of these Governments in the process of integration of the economies of both countries. Fernandez and Chavez have signed agreements in economic areas, health, labour, energy, agriculture, power, transport and sport, thus as technology transfer.

Cristina Fernandez has thanked Venezuela Argentine financial aid when the country lacked access to capital markets. It has occurred shortly before Cristina Fernandez to meet in Havana with President Raul Castro, also to sign agreements of cooperation between Argentina and Cuba in science, technology, trade, health and energy. The visit to Cuba of Cristina Fernandez was preceded by the President of Panama, Martin Torrijos, and also by the President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa. In coming weeks or months the Presidents of Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras, visit Cuba over the President of Chile, Michelle Bachelet. Several observers interpreted visits to Cuba with their collaboration agreements as a clear message to the elected President of United States, Obama: Cuba Latin America is and is not acceptable to forget her, nor worth embargoes.
