The Euroamérica Foundation is an independent organization. Its overriding objective is to stimulate cooperation and understanding between European and Latin American institutions, companies and personalities so as to foster relations between the two areas, primarily from the private sector. The Euroamérica Foundation wishes to reinforce the excellent opportunities to be had in both directions.
Founded in 1999 by an important group of European and Latin American institutions and personalities, membership to the Euroamérica Foundation is still open to public and private entities on both sides of the Atlantic, with the proviso of the objectives being assumed.
The Euroamérica Foundation can accommodate anybody who will contribute their experience and knowledge to broaden the areas of agreement between Europe and Latin America, welcoming ideas, projects and initiatives to increase familiarity between the two continents.
