French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish are used as working languages. All the texts of general diffusion are translated into these four languages, with some also going into Romanian and Catalan. Organization The Union is composed of three main bodies, namely, the Congress, the Executive Council, and the General Secretariat. Congress The Congress, which consists of the representatives of all the Member States, meets in ordinary assembly every two years. Its main functions are * to adopt the budget, * to define the general direction of the Union, * to receive the new Member States formally, and * to elect and appoint different Member States to be the Presidents, Vice-Presidents, and members of the sub-organisations of the Union. A President and two Vice-Presidents are also elected by the Congress. ::::What do you think about handling the Latin Monetary Union?

Latin Union

The '''Latin Union''' is a defunct international organization of nations that use Romance languages, with the aim of protecting, projecting, and promoting the common cultural heritage of Latin peoples and unifying identities of the Latin, and Latin-influenced, world. It was created in 1954 in Madrid, Spain, and existed as a functional institution from 1983 to 2012. Its membership rose from 12 to 36 states, including countries in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region.

The official names of the Latin Union are: '' '' in Spanish (Spanish language). Latin Union Official Site
