Lima, November 28 (RHC)-- Peruvian President Pedro Castillo traveled to Chile Monday on an official visit to participate in the two-day IV Presidential Meeting and Binational Cabinet in the Chilean capital.

According to the Peruvian Foreign Ministry, President Castillo's entourage will include the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Interior, Labor, Culture, Health, Defense, Production, Foreign Trade and Tourism, Economy and Finance, Environment and Energy and Mines.

The two-day agenda of the Peruvian head of state includes meetings between the ministers of both countries and a meeting with his Chilean counterpart Gabriel Boric with the Peru-Chile Business Council.

According to the Foreign Ministry, during Pedro Castillo's visit, the Santiago II Action Plan is expected to be approved, which includes commitments in the areas of social affairs and culture for integration, security and defense, foreign trade, investments, tourism and cooperation in science and technology, environment, sustainable development, energy and mining matters and border development and integration and infrastructure matters.

The Peruvian Foreign Ministry indicated that the IV Presidential Meeting and Binational Cabinet will address "issues of the bilateral agenda and the strengthening of border integration."  The Peru-Chile Binational Cabinet is the highest political and diplomatic instance and a tool to promote the most important and current cooperation issues for the benefit of the populations of both nations.

To date, three such meetings have been held: in Lima, in 2017; in Santiago in 2018; and in Caracas in 2019.
