This document is a contribution by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) to the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and the European Union (EU), (Brussels, 10-11 June 2015). Relations between the two regions exist in a rapidly changing international context, characterized by a technology revolution, the globalization of consumption patterns, the reorganization of the world economy into large blocs —with Asian economies playing a more prominent role— and growing environmental pressures. Against this backdrop of shifting circumstances, bilateral relations must respond to new challenges and opportunities.
