Much of the media spotlight is now focused on Panama and the Summit of the Americas which sees President Obama and other charismatic leaders like Raul Castro in particular as absolute protagonists of this event. We can say that the Latin American countries cannot find a better partner. President Obama first opened to Cuba, and now he offers encouraging prospects for energy supplies to these countries that depend almost entirely on Venezuela and its large oil resources .
As is widely known, Venezuela knows today an authoritarian system that disconcerts both the issues related to the energy problems in most Latin American countries and the international community as a whole. The Summit of the Americas represents an opportunity to identify prospects for new forms of multilateral cooperation in areas related directly to trade, environmental policy and regional policy.
