Trilateral meetings were held to strengthen commercial bonds among these nations, and the possibility of reaching a trading agreement with Asia, via the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (TTP). Moreover, they agreed to work for the ratification of rules and requirements needed to enter the three nations, to ease the flow of passengers and export products among them.
Polemic issues were also discussed, such as United States´ espionage and safety topics- after all, they are points that involve these three nations.
