The AL-INVEST programme is one of the most relevant regional economic cooperation programmes of the European Commission in Latin America. The main goal of the IVth phase of the Program is to promote social cohesion by supporting Latin American SMEs in their consolidation and internationalization, sharing innovation and knowledge and creating economic relations with their European counterparts. The fourth part of the programme is carried out by three sub-regional consortia of business organizations belonging to three different areas of Latin America: Central America-Cuba-Mexico (CAMC), Andean Region(RA) and Mercosur Chile and Venezuela (MCV). The three consortia have the support of the horizontal services provided by the Consortium of Coordination and Services, led by EUROCHAMBRES.
