Abstract

At the core of the process of revisiting the contemporary viewpoints regarding the issue of Development and International Relations, lies the Dynamic of Globalization. This does not cease to transform the evolutionary nature of global capitalism in all its dimensions, in all business, spatial and sectoral contexts. The Dynamic of Globalization which effectively makes a dent in the logic of the hedged about National Socioeconomic Space challenges our conventional wisdom. It also does not cease to build an unbreakable evolutionary unity of the different socioeconomic agents, gradually becoming more and more dense and strong in interactions and co-determinations, in uniform spatial terms. The issue of Competitiveness in the context of globalization is gradually emerging as the new epicenter of the Development and International Relations debate. Specifically, in globalizing process, Competitiveness is simultaneously produced by A) the accommodating Socioeconomic Space B) the incumbent Businesses and C) by materialization within the specific historical context of productive and Industrial Structures and dynamics articulated on a global scale. Searching Competitiveness the different socio-economic spaces, agents and industries are structurally unified in progressive manner. This approach of Competitiveness and Development in Global scale can help towards the progressive formation of a new Paradigm of Cooperation, which requires the upending of several conceptual fixations of the past.

Keywords: Globalization, competitiveness, development and international relations, attractiveness, evolution, paradigm of cooperation.
