After the meeting, the minister said that "we talked about the approval of the agreement to avoid double taxation, as well as the Visa Waiver Program. We expressed our strong interest in maintaining this program".

On the other hand, they discussed regional and global issues with a view to continue promoting actions to face common challenges.
