Abstract

This paper presents an alternative regional integration approach to join less developed countries and developing countries into a single trade bloc. According to our research the free trade is not enough to generate successful regional integration between less developed countries and developing countries according to our research. Therefore, we are interested to propose the regional cooperative scheme theoretical framework as an alternative regional integration scheme to implement among this type of countries.
