Abstract

Este trabajo analiza las causas de la reciente crisis económica en la frontera colombo-venezolana en Cúcuta a raíz de la devaluación del bolívar y el rompimiento de las relaciones comerciales binacionales. Los resultados sugieren que el ciclo económico de esta región presenta una alta dependencia por la economía del vecino país, de manera que los desequilibrios cambiarios y políticos han tenido un efecto considerable sobre los sectores reales de la economía cucuteña. Ello genera la necesidad de considerar políticas de desarrollo territorial que incorporen las especificidades de estas regiones, que se encuentran integradas con economías vecinas y, por ende, expuestas a choques externos que afectan su desempeño económico.******ABSTRACT: This study analyzes the causes of the recent economic crisis in Cucuta, Colombia, which stems from the devaluation of the Venezuelan currency and the breakup of the commercial relations between the two countries. Results suggest that this region’s economic cycle exhibits a sharp dependence upon the Venezuelan economy. Therefore, exchange and political shocks had a substantial impact on real urban economic sectors. This reflects the necessity of considering territorial development policies that take into account the specificities of borderline regions, which are naturally attached to neighboring economies, and hence, exposed to external shocks that affect economic performance.
