Relations between the EU and Honduras as with the Central American countries are based on the San José Dialogue launched in 1984 with the objective of seeking solutions to armed conflicts in the region by means of dialogue and negotiation. Since then it has become a platform upon which to strengthen co-operation, economic links and regional integration. The present legal basis for cooperation between Honduras and the European Union is the 1993 Framework Cooperation Agreement  together with other Central American countries and the 2003 Political Dialogue and Cooperation Agreement pdf - 105 KB [105 KB] español (es) français (fr) . The country is currently a beneficiary of the EU Generalised System of Preferences (GSP+).

Honduras is also part to the EU-Central America Association Agreement signed on 29th June 2012 in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The European Parliament gave its consent on 11 December 2012. The Association Agreement (not yet into force) is an ambitious and complex agreement settled upon three pillars: political dialogue, cooperation and a free trade area.

The Political Dialogue mechanisms foreseen in the agreement will allow maintaining a permanent platform to exchange views between the EU and Central America on any issue, from human rights, good governance, rule of law, democracy to protection of the environment. The Trade part establishing a free trade area between the EU and Central America will boost trade and investment flows between both regions, taking into account their developmental differences. Finally the Cooperation part takes into account the different levels of development. Since its inception, this region-to-region association has been accompanied by a wide programme of cooperation (see Regional Strategy Paper 2007-2013 and Mid-Term Review of the Regional Strategy Paper 2007-2013 for Central America ).

The EU is main donor of official development aid for Honduras. The priorities of the current cooperation can be found in the 2007-13 Country Strategy Paper pdf - 991 KB [991 KB] Deutsch (de) français (fr) .

Finally the EU also supports a number of initiatives of the civil society in several fields, particularly human rights, local development and environment.
