EU relations and cooperation with Grenada are carried out both on bilateral and regional basis, the latter within the framework of the on-going EU-CELAC and EU-CARIFORUM dialogues. Grenada is party to the Partnership Agreement between the members of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States and the European Union and its Member States, the "Cotonou Agreement".

The EU-Grenada cooperation strategy for the period 2008-2013  focuses at 84% on General Budget Support to assist the Government in implementing its development policies.

At regional level, the Caribbean is pioneer in signing, in October 2008, the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), between the Caribbean Forum (CARIFORUM countries) and the EU, a framework to help make trade, investment and development assistance easier for all parties, in particular promoting regional integration. Grenada is a signatory of the EPA.

In November 2012 the member states of the EU and the Caribbean adopted the new Joint Caribbean-European Union Partnership Strategy . This Strategy will enhance Caribbean– European Union relations and broaden the engagement by adding a political pillar to the traditionally development and trade cooperation based relationship with the Caribbean region. The strategy focuses on Regional Integration, Haiti Reconstruction, Climate Change and Natural Disasters, Crime and Security, and Joint Action in Multilateral Fora.
