Core, Semiperipheral, Peripheral, and  External regions Core regions Regions that dominate trade, control the most advanced  technologies, and have high levels of productivity within  diversified economies. Peripheral regions Regions with dependent and disadvantageous trading  relationships, obsolete technologies, and undeveloped or  narrowly specialized economies with low levels of productivity. Semiperipheral regions Regions that are able to exploit peripheral regions but are  themselves exploited and dominated by core regions. External regions Regions of the world not yet absorbed into the modern world- system.
