EU-CELAC Business Summit

New programmes to increase cooperation between the Europe and LATAM


Commercial ties between the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean have doubled over the last decade boosting exports and jobs. As leaders from the Community of Latin America and Caribbean States met with European officials in Brussels , several new projects were forged to elevate our trade ties and grow investment in small-to-medium sized enterprises, road infrastructure, water sanitation and sustainable energy among others, totalling €118 million.

26 of the 33 CELAC countries have concluded bilateral or sub-regional agreements with the EU. They create frameworks for dialogue, cooperation and trade. The European Union is the second trade partner of CELAC with 212 billion euros of exchanges in 2013. These flows have doubled in the past decade.

The Business Summit, under the theme "Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean: Promoting inclusive and sustainable growth by enhancing the role of Small and Medium Sized Enterprises," brings together 500 high-level participants from the business community, financial institutions and policymakers from across EU and CELAC Member States.

The European Commission has today announced €118 million of new support for Latin America and the Caribbean, to increase EU investment and business cooperation in the region. The announcement was made at the European Union (EU) - Community of Latin America and Caribbean States (CELAC) Business Summit.

Several new programmes announced today will be implemented through blending facilities (financial mechanisms combining grants and loans). They promote additional investment and key infrastructure in the transport, energy and environment sectors, and support the social and private sector´s development in Latin American and Caribbean countries.

Some examples of the projects announced in the framework of today´s event include:
  • An investment grant of €15 million for the Geothermal Development Facility Latin America which focuses on the development of geothermal energy in Latin America.
  • A contribution for an energy project for the Eastern Caribbean (€4.25 million of EU grant funding). This project is gives technical assistance and invests in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
  • The 5th phase of the Al-Invest programme (with total funding of €26 million) that facilitates access to international markets for Latin American small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
The European Union is also launching the European Union and Latin American business services and innovation network (ELAN) programme. Its aim is to promote EU business development in Latin American countries and technology-based business opportunities among EU and Latin American companies, with a total budget of €11 million. The programme is deployed in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Mexico and Costa Rica.

In the context of the Business Summit a new agreement between the European Commission and the Interamerican Development Bank (IDB), represented by its president Luis Alberto Moreno, has also been signed, to foster the close cooperation of these leading donor organisations.
