EESO sodeluje z latinskoameriškimi in karibskimi partnerskimi organizacijami že od 90. let 20. stoletja. Na odnose s to regijo na regionalni, podregionalni in nacionalni ravni se je osredotočil v več svojih mnenjih. Prednostne naloge EESO so med drugim razvoj organizacij civilne družbe, gospodarski in socialni razvoj, regionalno povezovanje in večstransko sodelovanje.

EESO na regionalni ravni vsaki dve leti organizira sestanke med predstavniki organizacij civilne družbe v Evropi, Latinski Ameriki in na Karibih kot del pripravljalnih dogodkov pred vrhom EU-Skupnost latinskoameriških in karibskih držav.

Na podregionalni in nacionalni ravni je vzpostavljenih več stalnih struktur: leta 2009 je EESO z brazilskim svetom za ekonomski in socialni razvoj vzpostavil okroglo mizo civilne družbe, da bi zagotovil forum za dialog in stalno sodelovanje med predstavniki brazilske in evropske civilne družbe. Na podlagi pridružitvenega sporazuma med EU in Čilom je bila Odboru zaupana naloga, da s čilsko partnersko civilno družbo ustanovi skupni posvetovalni odbor, ki bo spremljal sporazum. Dokončno je bil vzpostavljen leta 2016. V zvezi z državami Andske skupnosti EESO sodeluje v notranji svetovalni skupini, ki spremlja sporazum o prosti trgovini med EU ter Kolumbijo, Perujem in Ekvadorjem. Poleg tega sodeluje v posvetovalnem odboru Cariforum-EU, ki spremlja Sporazum o gospodarskem partnerstvu Cariforum-EU. Stalni odnosi so bili vzpostavljeni tudi z institucionalnimi partnerji EESO v Mercosurju (ekonomsko-socialni posvetovalni forum) in Srednji Ameriki (posvetovalni odbor Integracijskega sistema Srednje Amerike).

The EESC is a strong advocate of a fair, well-administered and sustainable development policy at EU level. It is also very committed to the cause of greater tax justice. In recent years, questions have been raised as to whether the international tax policies of the Member States, in particular the concluding of certain types of double taxation agreements, are consistent with EU development policy objectives.

The 2030 Agenda, the new global framework for sustainable development agreed by the UN in 2015, needs to be reflected in EU's development policy, the major orientations of which are set out in the 2005 European Consensus on Development ("the Consensus").

To this end, the Commission issued Communication COM(2016) 740, "Proposal for a New European Consensus on Development: Our World, Our Dignity, Our Future" in November 2016.  Interinstitutional negotiations are expected to result in its endorsement in the form of a Joint Statement by the Council, the European Parliament and the Commission, in May 2017.
