New partnerships for development: Keys to strengthen the relationship between the EU and Central America

Current growing global challenges expose the need to strengthen a partnership between the European Union (EU) and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). In the case of Central America, there are shared objectives and interests that provide ample opportunities to strengthen the partnership and move towards renewed bi-regional cooperation. This cooperation can focus on common agendas such as an inclusive recovery from the pandemic and the promotion of fair digital and green transitions as ways to comprehensive address national, regional and global challenges.

This paper is the result of a cooperation between the EU-LAC Foundation and the OECD Development Centre. The author is Martina Lejtreger.
