Welcome message

Welcome to the website of the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly. I am Javi López, Member of the European Parliament and, since September 2019, President of the European component of the Assembly.

Building on our long-standing parliamentary relationship and underpinned by common interests and values, political dialogue between the European Union and Latin America has become even more relevant in recent years against a backdrop of competition between great powers. Through our work, we hope to continue to forge ever-closer relations in the political, trade and cultural spheres.

Europe and Latin America face shared challenges such as defending, throughout the world, a dialogue- and rules-based multilateral order, ensuring truly inclusive economic growth able to reduce inequalities, combating climate change - an existential threat to our way of life - achieving the Sustainable Development Objectives, the ongoing battle for effective gender equality, creating a fair form of globalisation, institution-building and strengthening democratic guarantees.

In the EuroLat Assembly, the 75 Members of the European Parliament work alongside the 75 Latin American Members from the regional parliaments to provide a parliamentary dimension to the EU-LAC Bi-regional Strategic Partnership and to debate, monitor and review each of these issues and other questions relevant to citizens in the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean.

I am honoured and proud to work with partners on both sides of the Atlantic who are committed to striving for ever-closer bi-regional relations and to completing the vital task of transforming the friendship between our continents into a true alliance.

Javi López

President (2019-2024)
