The EU-LAC Economic Forum was established in 2016 as a high level gathering for in-depth research-based exchanges on economic issues between European, Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) policy makers and experts. We are pleased to invite you to the second edition of the forum which will take place on 26 June in Brussels.
Our next forum features three public sessions addressing strategic topics such as:

- Cultural and academic ties: how to increase the economic and political benefits of exchange?
- EU- LAC economic cooperation in a Global context: Trade, investment and the EU-CHINA race for Latin American markets
