The AL-INVEST program is one of the most important international cooperation programs from the European Commission in Latin America. It began in 1994 seeking to bring European investment to Latin America and with time, seeing the realities that were found in the region, it changed to promote internationalization and to promote and encourage productivity in thousands of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME´s) in Latin America. In 2015 the European commission launched a tender for the fifth phase of this program: AL-INVEST 5.0: integrating growth for social cohesion in Latin America, and the consortium of 11 international organizations that are coordinated by the Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce Industry Services and Tourism of Santa Cruz - Bolivia (CAINCO) won the tender to execute the project in all Latin America.
