Global | EU-Latam relations

This presentation addresses the EU-Latam relationship and its structural challenges, as well as focusing on the analysis of the levers for productivity growth and how both regions can better address the challenges ahead by shoring up their relations on multiple fronts, building on many strengths.

Key points

  • Key points:
  • Latam must face the fourth negative shock in short succession since 2014: end of commodity supercycle (2014), COVID (2019), war in Ukraine (in 2022 and which still continues) and tightening global financial conditions. The significant gap with growth in gdp per capita in the region requires higher investment to reverse this trend.
  • Evolving geopolitics, technology and climate change realities pose new challenges in Europe and call for new policies and shifts of economic models.
  • Latam and Europe need to increase per-capita growth: the role of private investment and institutions is key.
  • Among the levers whose dynamics can allow these two regions to face the challenges we develop four: trade under the roof of modern trade agreements, FDI from Europe in key sectors, cooperation on climate change including investment in valued added value chains, developing human ties and taking advantage of demographic trends and strong human ties in migration and education.
