Latin America has stopped being the continent of the political instability and the economic crises and has happened to be a region with an extraordinary potential of future. Although it is certain that hardly we can speak of a single Latin America. It is impossible to compare Chile with Haiti, although yes we can compare Mexico with Brazil and these two last countries can be compared with Spain or another European country. As far as the European Union, it has grown in recent years while it has been reinforcing his bows with other places of the world and increased his influence political. The European Union tries to have an excellent paper in the global scene. Its economic and social model already has demonstrated to have a degree remarkable of success to obtain a greater social and territorial cohesion in the countries integrate that it.
Against this background, Europe cannot consider to confront with consistency its challenges if it is not with strategies coordinated at international level. Therefore, it acquires a greater force the necessity that Latin America and the Union European they reinforce its relation and its cooperation. Then still being conscious of the differences and difficulties, the certain thing is that Latin America enjoys a clearly advantageous position with respect to other places of the world: not only it has realised an important effort of economic stabilization, but it has improved his social indicators. Some of their countries have started up strategies of reduction of the poverty and have made significant progresses in primary education, equality of sort and rates of schooling. Still it is much to do, because a third of the total of its population lives under the threshold of the poverty and Latin America is the most unequal region of the world. But one works in the right direction. The paradox is that the region offers excellent perspective of future.
