Latinska Amerika in Karibi

This page is also available in

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).

"I am also here as a spokesperson for Latin American civil society organisations, who have given me the honourable task of bringing our joint recommendations - civil society recommendations - to our heads of state or government. We produced these recommendations at the 7th EU-Latin America meeting of organised civil society that we held here, in Santiago, in December last year.
We are convinced of the importance for civil society to be at the centre of EULatin America relations. Participation is crucial in order to secure more transparent relations and increased ownership of political and trade exchanges, and also to ensure the more efficient implementation of policies."

Civil society must be at the centre of the EU-Latin America relations. Participation of civil society is crucial in order to have more transparent relations and an increased ownership of political and trade exchanges, and also to have a more efficient implementation of policies. This can be better achieved through the existence of consultative bodies, which is why the EESC has always worked on the creation and strengthening of Latin American consultative institutions.

The purpose of today's meeting is two-fold.
We thought it would be good if we, representatives from European organised civil society, would meet to exchange information about planned activities in Rio and to see how we could further foster our common values and positions throughout these diverse activities.
The second reason for today's meeting turns out to be very timely. Originally we had invited Timo Makela, Director of DG Environment, to give us a de-briefing on ongoing Rio negotiations in New York.
