During the gathering, both nations agreed to reinforce bilateral relations. Officials analyzed the potential existing in trade and investment sectors, especially in infrastructure development.

Moreover, they assessed outlooks for greater cooperation on logistics and port-related matters, as well as collaboration on issues such as the fight against organized crime and Peru's National Strategy against Drugs.

Martinetti expressed his gratitude to Netherlands for the support offered in favor of Peruvian participation at the OECD Country Programme and the Schengen visa waiver process.

At the same time, authorities agreed on the need to grant access to Peruvian exports, such as camu camu, sacha inchi, cañihua, huito, among others.

Both countries rely on a common commercial interest based on placing biodiverse products on the European market.
