EESRK dirbo su Lotynų Amerikos ir Karibų jūros regiono organizacijomis partnerėmis nuo XX a. paskutinio dešimtmečio. Kelete EESRK nuomonių daugiausia dėmesio skiriama santykiams su šiuo regionu, regioniniu, subregioniniu ir nacionaliniu lygmenimis. EESRK prioritetai apima pilietinės visuomenės organizacijas, ekonominį ir socialinį vystymąsi, regioninę integraciją ir daugiašalį bendradarbiavimą.

Regioniniu lygmeniu EESRK kas dvejus metus organizuoja pilietinės visuomenės organizacijų atstovų Europoje, Lotynų Amerikoje ir Karibų jūros regione susitikimus, taip pat vieną iš parengiamųjų renginių prieš ES ir CELAC aukščiausiojo lygio susitikimą.

Subregioniniu ir nacionaliniu lygmenimis buvo sukurta keletas nuolatinių struktūrų: 2009 m. Brazilijos ir Europos pilietinės visuomenės atstovų dialogui ir nuolatiniam bendradarbiavimui EESRK su Brazilijos ekonomikos ir socialinių reikalų taryba įsteigė pilietinės visuomenės forumą – apskritąjį stalą. ES ir Čilės asociacijos susitarimas suteikė Komitetui įgaliojimus susitarimo stebėsenai įsteigti jungtinį konsultacinį komitetą su Čilės pilietinės visuomenės partneriu. JKK galiausiai buvo įsteigtas 2016 m. Kalbant apie Andų bendrijos šalis, EESRK dalyvauja vietos patarėjų grupėje, vykdančioje ES ir Kolumbijos, Peru ir Ekvadoro laisvosios prekybos susitarimo stebėseną. Jis taip pat dalyvauja CARIFORUM ir ES jungtiniame komitete, kuris stebi ES ir CARIFORUM ekonominės partnerystės susitarimą. Nuolatiniai ryšiai užmegzti su EESRK instituciniais partneriais MERCOSUR (konsultaciniu ekonomikos ir socialinių reikalų forumu) ir Centrinėje Amerikoje (Centrinės Amerikos integracijos sistema).
