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).
