Welcome

 

Austria is proud to host the IV Summit of Heads of State and Government of the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean, which will take place in Vienna on 12 May.

The summit will be held under the overall theme “Strengthening the bi-regional strategic association” and will allow us to take stock of the progress achieved since the 2004 Guadalajara Summit and to decide about ways to continue strengthening our partnership. 

In parallel to the Vienna Summit, Austria is also organizing the first European Union, Latin America and Caribbean Business Summit. It will convene important representatives from the business communities of the two regions, providing them with a valuable platform for discussing trade relations, investment, services and business opportunities.

The EU, Latin America and the Caribbean have a mutual interest in a strong multifaceted relationship. I trust that the Vienna Summit will provide an excellent opportunity to give a further boost to the consolidation of our ties in ways which will be beneficial to both regions and also make a positive difference for our citizens.

 

Wolfgang Schüssel
Federal Chancellor
