FEALAC confers high priority to investment cooperation in the forum, as an important means to promote development, prosperity and social inclusiveness for the populations as well as a way to promote a meaningful and substantive relationship between East Asia and Latin America.
FEALAC also supports global efforts to eradicate poverty, hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity through the investment in food and nutrition, sustainable agriculture and rural development.
In this regards, FEALAC Foreign Ministers announced "Decision on Trade and Investment" to pursue a goal of increasing trade and investment flows between the two regions at the 3rd Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in 2007.
To meet the needs of more investment opportunity within FEALAC, Argentina proposed an idea to establish a FEALAC Database of Investment Projects at the 5th Foreign Ministers’ Meeting in 2011. It is to create awareness on existing investment opportunities in both regions which efficiently allow for member countries to post offers of investment projects seeking interregional investors.
The Investment Opportunity Database system was operated since 2015 so that member countries can take advantage of this useful instrument.
The new investment projects seeking interregional investors will be posted on request.
