Asia Pacific Latin American Observatory

The Latin American Centre of Asia Pacific is the Asia House program whose main objective is to facilitate knowledge of Asia Pacific Latin American nations to contribute to closer economic relations, business, academic and cultural cooperation between the two areas.

To meet its objectives, the Observatory offers current and practical information on various areas of interest to those relations, especially economic and business through its website, updated daily, and its bimonthly newsletters.

Among the economic content of their own, highlights the current summary prepared every two months by the staff of the Observatory in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru, articles Garrigues prepared monthly for the Centre and the annual summary of Asia-Latin American ties.

The program in Spain organizes seminars and conferences on topical economic issues in Latin America-Asia Pacific relations and promoted the inclusion of them in various international events.

The decision to establish the Centre was made in 2005, the year he won the American Conference as an observer at the United Nations and the Ibero-American Secretariat started in Madrid. The Centre was launched at a ceremony presided over by Enrique Iglesias, Iberoamerican Secretary General, in June 2006 at the headquarters of Casa Asia in Barcelona.

The Centre reflects the experience of the "Triangulation España/UE- Latin America-Asia-Pacific", developed since 2001 by Casa Asia and Casa de América. This program, consisting mainly of a few days a year, gave way to the Centre by the need to expand its range of content and activities and to make permanent the link partners.

Since its inception, the program has been sponsored by BBVA, Fundación ICO and Garrigues and has organized its activities along with House of America and the Secretaría General Iberoamericana. Similarly, Asia House is a member of the Network for Latin America and the Caribbean on Asia-Pacific (REDEALAP), whose board of directors was invited to Spain by Casa Asia and the Carolina Foundation in February 2010.
