    EESC President spoke for the EU and Latin American organised civil society at the EU-CELAC Summit in Santiago de Chile EESC President Staffan Nilsson participated in the EU-CELAC Summit in Santiago de Chile on 26-27 January 2013. He addressed the heads of states or governments on behalf of the EU and Latin American organised civil society organisations and presented joint civil society recommendations to the EU-CELAC summit, which are the outcome of the 7th EU-Latin America meeting of organised civil society held in December last year. President Staffan Nilsson expressed his conviction of the importance of civil society to be at the centre of EU-Latin America relations. Participation is crucial in order to secure more transparent relations and increased ownership of political and trade exchanges, and also to ensure more efficient policies-making and the actions they trigger on the ground.

    EIB and EESC presidents call for acceleration of investments in the EU. EIB president Werner Hoyer and EESC president Staffan Nilsson met in Luxembourg on 19 December. They called for accelerating investments in the EU to facilitate structural change, and to put the EU economy on the path to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, and strengthen EU competitiveness as defined in the Europe 2020 Strategy. Staffan Nilsson welcomed the focus on projects with the greatest impact in terms of growth, employment, economic cohesion and climate action. Both the EIB and the EESC agreed on the need to strengthen the EIB's relations with civil society: civil society, especially business groups, provides valuable input in exploring ways to develop SME policies because of its understanding of local problems, needs and expectations. The EIB would therefore welcome stronger links to the EESC in areas of common interest.
