The European Union in Miami


Miami is an ideal location for a European Union Center because it is the nexus of long-standing links among the Southeast Florida Region, Latin America and the Caribbean, and countries of the European Union. Connected by culture, travel and tourism, and extensive trade ties to our area, the EU has played a prominent role in the development of Miami into a vibrant multicultural metropolis. The larger EU countries maintain diplomatic and trade legations in Miami, and many European banking, finance, insurance and other firms maintain regional headquarters here.
