Today the EU-LAC Foundation has become an international organisation with the attainment of the necessary quorum of ratifications by EU and Latin American and Caribbean States. This milestone comes two and half years after the signature of the Constitutive Agreement to transform the Foundation into an international organisation. With this step, the Foundation reinforces its role as an instrument to further strengthen the bi-regional relations between Europa and Latin America and the Caribbean, in line with the recent EU Council conclusions that welcomed and endorsed the Joint Communication “EU and Latin America and the Caribbean – joining forces for a common future”.
