The Arab – Latin-American Forum in Abu Dhabi (16-17 December 2012) brought together decision- makers of both continents, coming from three key sectors: thought leaders, corporate and government representatives. The event was co-organized by the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) and the Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (FUNGLODE).

During three intensive sessions, participants discussed thoroughly economic opportunities of the bi-regional relation, educational and academic cooperation as well as a mutual vision on the most pressing global issues.

Participants underlined the need to further and broaden the discussion, in particular on key issues such as democratization, gender equality and the environment.

The key outcome of this event lies in the announcement, in the Forum Final Declaration, of the creation of a Council of 20 high-level personalities to steer the efforts towards an enhanced Arab-Latin American partnership.

NGC welcomes this decision that should give a sense of direction and priorities to the rapprochement process that has only just begun.
