Latinská Amerika a Karibik

This page is also available in

EHSV spolupracuje s obdobnými organizacemi v zemích Latinské Ameriky a Karibiku již od 90. let dvacátého století. V několika svých stanoviscích se zaměřil na vztahy s tímto regionem na regionální, subregionální a celostátní úrovni. Mezi jeho priority patří rozvoj organizací občanské společnosti, hospodářský a sociální rozvoj, regionální integrace a mnohostranná spolupráce.

Na regionální úrovni EHSV organizuje v Evropě, Latinské Americe a Karibiku dvakrát ročně setkání zástupců organizací občanské společnosti jakožto jednu z přípravných akcí před summitem EU-CELAC. 

Na subregionální a celostátní úrovni bylo vytvořeno několik stálých struktur: v roce 2009 EHSV vytvořil s brazilskou hospodářskou a sociální radou kulatý stůl občanské společnosti, jenž představuje fórum pro dialog a trvalou spolupráci zástupců brazilské a evropské občanské společnosti. Dohodou o přidružení mezi EU a Chile byl Výbor pověřen vytvořením smíšeného poradního výboru s obdobnou organizací chilské občanské společnosti pro účely monitorování dohody. Poradní výbor byl zřízen v roce 2016. Pokud jde o země Andského společenství, podílí se EHSV na monitorování dohody o volném obchodu mezi EU a Kolumbií/Peru/Ekvádorem, které provádí interní poradní skupina. Je rovněž aktivní v Poradním výboru EU-CARIFORUM, který sleduje provádění Dohody o hospodářském partnerství mezi státy CARIFORA a EU. Trvalé vztahy byly navázány s obdobnými institucionálními orgány zemí Mercosuru (Hospodářské a sociální poradní fórum) a Střední Ameriky (Poradní výbor Středoamerického integračního systému).
