1. Management: is a steering influence on market, production and/or resource operations in an organization and its units that may address both people and non-people issues and is exerted by multiple organizational actors through either anticipatory norm-setting (= constitutive or strategic management) or situational intervention (= operational management) with the aim of achieving the unit’s objectives. To manage a unit is synonymous with “directing” or “leading” it. (Kaehler & Grundei, 2019, p. 22)

Gerencia: Es la encargada de definir misiones, visiones y objetivos, políticas y estrategias como parte del sistema gerencial de una organización, apoyado sin lugar a dudas en la diagnosis del contexto en el que se encuentran inmersas las organizaciones y complementado con el análisis minucioso de elementos internos que forman parte del sistema de gestión de las organizaciones.(González, Salazar, Ortiz, & Verdugo, 2019, pp. 250-251)

2. MERCOSUR: The Southern Common Market (or MERCOSUR, according to the Spanish acronym) is a regional integration process initially created by Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Later, Venezuela also joined MERCOSUR (however currently suspended) and Bolivia, which is still in the process of accession to MERCOSUR. MERCOSUR is an open and dynamic process. Since its creation, its main objective has been to promote a common space that generates trade and investment opportunities through the competitive integration of national economies into the international market. However, and despite its name, it is not currently a common market, but an imperfect customs union because some products dutys must be paid.MERCOSUR has entered into multiple agreements with States or groups of States, granting them, in some cases, the status of AssociatedStates, for example, with Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia, among others. They participate in activities and meetings of the bloc and have trade preferences with the States Parties. (Guardatti, 2020, pp. 1-2)

MERCOSUR: El Mercado Común del Sur (MERCOSUR) es un proceso de integración regional instituido inicialmente por Argentina, Brasil, Paraguay y Uruguay al cual en fases posteriores se han incorporado Venezuela* y Bolivia, ésta última en proceso de adhesión. (MERCOSUR, 2021)
