Inter-parliamentary delegations

The European Parliament’s inter-parliamentary delegations seek to maintain and deepen relations with parliaments or parliamentarians from countries, regions and organisations outside the EU. There are currently 44 standing delegations engaged in ‘parliamentary diplomacy’ and they fall into three types, as set out below. The chairs of the delegations meet together in the Conference of Delegation Chairs (CDC), together with those of the three committees that work on international relations – the Committees on Foreign Affairs (AFET), Development (DEVE) and International Trade (INTA). The Chair of the CDC is currently Inmaculada Rodríguez-Piñero, Chair of the EU-Chile Delegation.
