Update – the speech by HR/VP Mogherini at the EP on the Joint Communication to the EP and to the Council: EU, Latin America and the Caribbean – joining forces for a common future is available.
The European Union is strengthening its political partnership with Latin America and the Caribbean by focusing it on four priorities – prosperity, democracy, resilience and effective global governance – for common future. The vision for a stronger and modernised bi-regional partnership focused on trade, investment and sectoral cooperation is set out in a new joint communication presented by the European Commission and the High Representative. This new partnership aims at working together in changing global and regional realities that require joint efforts to address common challenges and opportunities.
