On Thursday November 14, the leaders of Ecuador and Peru, Rafael Correa and Ollanta Humala, will meet in the seventh Binational Cabinet in Piura, a small town near the border between the two countries.
At the meeting, the presidents will discuss issues regarding the agreements on social, security and defense, production and environment, infrastructure and connectivity among others.
While the Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino stated on public radio that the purpose of these meetings is to “see how to improve cross-border integration, quality of life, infrastructure, the security of our borders. (…) There is a plan that is getting more detailed, more careful to ensure that the living conditions in northern Peru and southern Ecuador are getting better.”
For the seventh time the two countries have met since 2007, in order to improve and strengthen their binational integration.
