Ministers of foreign affairs from the European Union and from the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) met for the second time on 16-17 July 2018. They adopted a declaration 'Building bridges and strengthening our partnership to face global challenges'.
Ministers focused on consolidating multilateralism and strengthening the cooperation in global forums. They also discussed common challenges and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. Finally, ministers agreed to work more closely together in support of inclusive and sustainable economies, as well as trade, investments, and productivity.
The EU and CELAC (the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) represent 61 countries – around one third of the UN membership – and over a billion people.
