EU / LAC Lima Summit
Brussels, 16 May 2008 (ITUC OnLine): On the occasion of the Summit of Heads of States of the EU and Latin America and the Caribbean (EU-LAC) countries in Lima, the international trade union movement has called for the declaration of the IV Trade Union EU-LAC Summit to be taken into account when drawing up the conclusions.

In the Declaration, the European, Latin American and Caribbean trade unions pledge their full commitment to sub-regional integration processes and call for MERCOSUR, the Andean Community, the Central American Integration System (SICA) and the Caribbean Forum (CARIFORUM/CARICOM) to develop solid and democratic institutions which accurately represent the views held by the citizens of their member countries.
