In the construction of socialism, it has been a mistake to identify social ownership of the means of production with its simple majority or fundamental possession by the central State. Under the multiple economic systems that coexist in the transition, economic forms must be recognized so that it makes it counterbalance to private forms, in conditions to favor competition that limits the market power in one sector or another, as well as the search for alliances between the public and private sectors to more efficiently guarantee the needs of society. The State should not be identified only with the central level, since provincial and municipal levels are included. These must have greater powers and autonomy that allow the exercise of citizen power, the gradual transformation of salaried workers into associated producers, and thus be true protagonists of development in all its economic, social and environmental dimensions.

Keywords : local development; state property; social property.
