On 26 April from 15.00 to 17.00h, the International Trade Committee will hold a public hearing on "Reinforcing EU-Latin America Trade Relations".

The EU and Latin America have traditionally been close trading partners. Collectively, the EU is Latin America's third-largest trading partner and its biggest source of foreign direct investment (FDI). The hearing will be an opportunity to hear from a range of distinguished experts about the prospects for closer EU-Latin America trade relations. The first panel will reflect upon the opportunities and challenges of closer EU-Latin America trade and investment relations. The second panel will look at the role of trade and investment in fostering sustainable development in the EU and Latin America, in the context of the EU's new trade and sustainable development approach.
