Lula's recent trip is a formal expression of the growth of the political and economic influence of Brazil in the region, which traditionally is the back yard of Mexico.
The progress and the establishment of Brazil as a South American economic and political leader was already clear when it was incorporated, as a regional observer, into the System of Central American Integration (SICA) in 2008. Since that time, it began to enhance its relationship with this region, which it has visited three times in the last thirteen months.
