The main goal of the IVth phase of the programme is to promote social cohesion by supporting Latin American small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in their consolidation and internationalization, by exchanging innovation, knowledge and economic relations with its European counterpart. The fourth phase of the program is carried out by three sub-regional consortia of business organizations from three different areas of Latin America: Central America-Cuba-México (CAMC), Andean Region (RA) and Mercosur Chile and Venezuela (MCV). The three consortia are supported by horizontal services provided by the Coordination and Services Consortium (CS) led by EUROCHAMBRES.
