As a space for political and technical cooperation, Arco Latino is formed by intermediate Mediterranean local authorities. Their current members are Spanish Provincial Councils and Insular Councils, French Departments and Italian Provinces, thus representing 10% of the European Union population and territory.

Arco Latino´s main objectives are: 1. Define an integrated development and planning strategy for the Arco Latino area, including and mobilizing the socioeconomic actors from the bottom to the top 2. Establish a regular, dynamic and flexible agreement focused on the most important fields of regional development 3. Cooperate in common projects and initiatives; 4. Defend the regional interests and needs in front of the EC and national institutions; 5. Create a space of cooperation with the South Mediterranean countries. The Arco Latino members work within 4 Thematic Commissions on : Social, Territorial, Economic Cohesion and Cooperation in the Mediterranean area.
