Eu lac

Leaders from the EU and Latina America and Caribbean (LAC) met virtually on 2 December 2021 to relaunch the dialogue between the two regions and discuss cooperation actions for a sustainable post-COVID recovery.

Digital transformation is one of the key points addressed: during the meeting, leaders announced the launch of the EU-LAC Digital Alliance in spring 2022. The initiative will build on the deployment of a transatlantic fibre optic cable (EllaLink) between the EU and LAC to advance convergence in rules and standards and promote digital innovation.

The EU will support the development of the necessary infrastructure in LAC countries through the BELLA programme.
