The ECR Group to hold its first ECR EuroLat Summit

On Tuesday 15, Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 June, the ECR Group will host its first ECR Eurolat Summit. The event will focus on ‘A new beginning for the Euro-Iberoamerican relationship’, ‘A chance to improve lives and freedom across two continents’, ‘EU Trade Agreements with Latin America and the Caribbean: a tool to end oppressive regimes’ and ‘EU and Latin America main enemy: the Narco regimes’.

The summit is the first major democratic, conservative and anti-communist Ibero-American political forum within the European Parliament and marks the beginning of a long-term political initiative aiming to put and end to the paralysis on political cooperation with Latin America.

Live-streamed in English and Spanish on the ECR Group’s YouTube channel, the live broadcast will feature Santiago Abascal, President of the VOX party in Spain, Giorgia Meloni, President of Fratelli d’Italia in Italy, Jarosław Kaczyński, President of PiS in Poland, María Corina Machado, President of Vente Venezuela in Venezuela, ECR Group Co-Chairmen Prof Ryszard Legutko and Raffaele Fitto, Hermann Tertsch, President of the ECR EuroLat Policy Group, Anna Fotyga, Carlo Fidanza and Charlie Weimers, Vice-Presidents of the ECR EuroLat Policy Group and several high-level politicians and people from the civil society both from Europe and Latin-America.
