Vienna Summit, 12 May

DonauWien2Schönbrunn

 

The preparatory work for the Vienna Summit began at the end of 2004 in the context of the EU-LAC XV bi-regional meeting at senior official level (SOM). At the XVI SOM meeting in the spring of 2005 there was agreement on the organizational aspects, as well as on the working calendar for the preparatory work until the Summit. Simultaneously it was decided to establish an informal bi-regional Working Group in Brussels with the task of discussing the topics of the Vienna Summit.

The agenda of the Summit was agreed at the XVII SOM Meeting in November 2005:

  • Democracy and human rights
  • Strengthening the multilateral approach to fostering peace, stability and respect for international law
  • Terrorism
  • Drugs and organized crime
  • Environment (including disaster prevention, mitigation and preparedness)
  • Energy
  • Association agreements; regional integration; trade; connectivity (investment, infrastructure and information society).
  • Growth and employment
  • The fight against poverty, inequality and exclusion
  • Development co-operation and international financing for development
  • Migration
  • Knowledge sharing and human capacity building: higher education, research, science and technology, culture

At the XVIII SOM in Vienna on February 9th the EU side presented a draft for the Final Declaration of the EU-LAC Summit to the LAC-side. This draft was negotiated at the XIX and XX SOM immediately before the Summit in Vienna.
