          Abstract

          Resumen Este artículo presenta resultados de un estudio sobre las estrategias de los Grupos Empresariales Diversificados (GED) centroamericanos en frente a la globalización. Busca comprender cómo estos han cambiado en el proceso de integración económica en términos de su expansión al exterior, los sectores enfocados y su integración con las compañías transnacionales. Se plantea que, en general, los GED han cedido espacio para las grandes Compañías Transnacionales, a despecho de importantes excepciones y surgimiento de nuevos grupos. Sin embargo, mantienen su influenza por medio de sus redes de contactos nacionales y internacionales.

          Abstract This article presents the results of study about the strategies of Central American diversified business groups (DBG) regarding globalization. It searches to understand how they have changed during the process of economic integration in terms of their internationalization, sectoral focus and integration with transnational companies. We argue that, in general, the DBG had lost terrain to transnational companies, despite important exception and the rise of new groups. However, they still maintain their influence through their contact networks at both the national and international level.
