Il-KESE ilu jaħdem mal-organizzazzjonijiet imsieħba mill-Amerka Latina u l-Karibew mis-snin desgħin. Diversi Opinjonijiet tal-KESE ffukaw fuq ir-relazzjonijiet ma’ dan ir-reġjun, f’livell reġjonali, subreġjonali u nazzjonali. Il-prijoritajiet tal-KESE jinkludu l-iżvilupp tal-organizzazzjonijiet tas-soċjetà ċivili, l-iżvilupp ekonomiku u soċjali, l-integrazzjoni reġjonali u l-kooperazzjoni fl-isfera multilaterali.

Fil-livell reġjonali, il-KESE jorganizza laqgħat biennali bejn ir-rappreżentanti tal-organizzazzjoni tas-soċjetà ċivili fl-Ewropa, fl-Amerka Latina u fil-Karibew, bħala wieħed mill-avvenimenti ta’ tħejjija qabel is-Summit EU-CELAC.

Fil-livell subreġjonali u nazzjonali, ġew stabbiliti diversi strutturi permanenti: fl-2009, il-KESE waqqaf Round Table tas-soċjetà ċivili mal-Kunsill Ekonomiku u Soċjali Brażiljan bil-għan li jipprovdi forum għad-djalogu u l-kooperazzjoni kontinwa bejn rappreżentanti tas-soċjetà ċivili mill-Brażil u mill-Ewropa. Il-Ftehim ta’ Assoċjazzjoni bejn l-UE u ċ-Ċilì ta lill-Kumitat mandat biex jistabbilixxi Kumitat Konsultattiv Konġunt mal-kontraparti tiegħu mis-soċjetà ċivili Ċilena, bil-għan li jiġi ssorveljat il-ftehim, li fl-aħħar mill-aħħar ġie stabbilit fl-2016. Fejn jidħlu l-pajjiżi tal-Komunità Andina, il-KESE jieħu sehem fil-Grupp Konsultattiv Domestiku li jissorvelja l-ftehim ta’ kummerċ ħieles bejn l-UE u l-Kolombja/il-Perù/l-Ekwador. Jipparteċipa wkoll fil-Kumitat Konsultattiv CARIFORUM-UE, li jissorvelja l-Ftehim ta’ Sħubija Ekonomika CARIFORUM-UE. Ġew stabbiliti relazzjonijiet permanenti mal-kontrapartijiet istituzzjonali tal-KESE fil-MERCOSUR (il-Forum Konsultattiv Ekonomiku u Soċjali) u fl-Amerka Ċentrali (il-Kumitat Konsultattiv tas-Sistema tal-Integrazzjoni tal-Amerka Ċentrali).
