Latinska Amerika i karipske zemlje

EGSO surađuje s ekvivalentnim latinoameričkim i karipskim organizacijama od 1990-ih godina. Nekoliko mišljenja EGSO-a bilo je usmjereno na odnose s tom regijom na regionalnoj, podregionalnoj i nacionalnoj razini. Neki od prioriteta EGSO-a su razvoj organizacija civilnog društva, gospodarski i socijalni razvoj, regionalna integracija i suradnja na multilateralnoj razini.

Na razini regije EGSO organizira sastanke između predstavnika organizacija civilnog društva u Europi, Latinskoj Americi i Karibima koji se održavaju svake dvije godine i jedno su od pripremnih događanja za sastanak na vrhu između EU-a i CELAC-a.

Na podregionalnoj i nacionalnoj razini osnovano je nekoliko trajnih tijela: godine 2009. EGSO je zajedno s brazilskim Vijećem za gospodarski i socijalni razvoj osnovao Okrugli stol civilnog društva kako bi se predstavnicima brazilskog i europskog civilnog društva omogućio forum za dijalog i trajnu suradnju. EGSO je Sporazumom o pridruživanju između EU-a i Čilea dobio mandat da sa svojim kolegama iz čileanskog civilnog društva osnuje Zajednički savjetodavni odbor koji će pratiti Sporazum, a koji je u konačnici uspostavljen 2016. godine. Kad je riječ o andskim zemljama, EGSO sudjeluje u radu Unutarnje savjetodavne skupine koja prati Sporazum o slobodnoj trgovini između EU-a i Kolumbije/Perua/Ekvadora. Sudjeluje i u radu Savjetodavnog odbora CARIFORUM-a i EU-a koji nadzire Sporazum o gospodarskom partnerstvu između država CARIFORUM-a i EU-a. Uspostavljeni su stalni odnosi EGSO-a s institucijskim ekvivalentima zemalja Mercosura (Gospodarski i socijalni savjetodavni forum) i Srednje Amerike (Savjetodavni odbor integracijskog sustava Srednje Amerike).
