(p.127) 7 The Cuba-Venezuela Alliance and Its Continental Impact
Cuba in a Global Context

University Press of Florida

Since at least 1999, Cuba and Venezuela have worked together to establish a partnership based on a mutual reinforcement of sociopolitical forces and historical, ideological, and personal friendship factors cemented by geographical proximity. Although Cuba’s socialist regime and Venezuela’s Bolivarian process remain systemically and structurally different, the two countries have put a claim to the Bolivarian ideal of a united Latin America free of U.S. dominance. This closely knit partnership has had a significant domestic effect—recognizing their capacity to help each other and exchange goods and services in a collaborative fashion. It has been matched by its widely felt continental impact. In addition to a source of vital resources and services for both countries, the partnership has promoted Latin American unity and other long-held objectives. ALBA—the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of the Americas—has been instrumental in pursuing such goals.
