The Forum for East Asia-Latin America Cooperation ( Spanish: Foro de Cooperación Asia Oriental-América Latina) or (abbreviated as FEALAC) is a regional forum of 36 countries constituting the region of East, Southeast Asia and Latin America that came together to form an official and regular dialogue channel between the two regions. [1]


East Asia and Latin America are both composed of developing countries and are economically dynamic and complementary to each other. They follow the global trend of regional cooperation; the need for intercontinental cooperation between East Asia and Latin America arose because there was no official cooperative mechanism bridging the two regions. In 1998, a concrete proposal to enhance the relations of the two regions was initiated by the former Singaporean Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong. Subsequently, the East Asia-Latin America Forum Senior Officials meeting was held in Singapore in 1998, marking the beginning of the organization. [1]
