EU/LAC Summits

310 views

Summits of the EU, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) leaders take place biennially. EU policy priorities towards Latin America since 2010 focus on: deepening political dialogue at bilateral, regional and multilateral level; deepening mutually beneficial trade and investment ties; furthering closer bilateral relations with individual Latin American countries while also supporting regional integration; increased dialogue on macro-economic and financial issues, environment and energy or science and research, intensifying our cooperation in these fields; supporting the region’s efforts to reduce poverty and inequality and to pursue sustainable development, in line with the EU’s Agenda for Change; adapting cooperation programmes to cover innovative areas not addressed by traditional development cooperation; involving civil society in the Strategic Partnership including through the EU/LAC Foundation. A wide range of agreements with individual countries and groups of countries in the region have been concluded, including Association Agreements with Chile and Mexico. Strategic Partnerships have been established with Brazil and Mexico. An Association Agreement with Central America, as well as a Trade Agreement with Peru and Colombia have been signed.
