The European Union (EU) and the Latin American and Caribbean region (LAC) share certain values and interests, especially in some areas of strategic importance for both, such as trade, human development, energy transition and the fight against climate change, security and justice, or the defence of global public goods.

While some dimensions of these bi-regional relations are already strong –such as investment–, there is ample room for such relations to be further leveraged through closer cooperation.

In this context, and during the Spanish Presidency of the EU Council, the European Think Tanks Group (ETTG) and the Elcano Royal Institute have elaborated a report on EU-LAC relations with the support from the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation. This report explores how EU-LAC relations can be strengthened in three development-related areas of key relevance for both: development finance, climate change and the energy transition, and addressing inequalities.
