The head of the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) of Peru, Edmer Trujillo Mori, is in Cochabamba, Bolivia, to promote the integration of both Andean countries in terms of ground, air, port and telecommunications transport infrastructure.

The Peruvian minister is meeting with his Bolivian counterpart, Milton Claros, within the framework of the "Working meeting in the areas of Transportation and Communications for the Peruvian-Bolivian integration."

The work agenda has focused on six issues, among which are the advances in the Cabotage Law proposed by Peru, the agreement for the approval of driver's licenses between Peru and Bolivia, as well as the strengthening of the bioceanic train project, among others.

The meeting is another step in the deepening of binational consolidation for the benefit of the populations of Peru and Bolivia. At the end of May, the Peruvian city of Ilo was the scene of the meeting between both officials and their respective technical teams.

In the Peruvian delegation, chaired by Trujillo, participate the ministerial cabinet chief, Eduardo González; the executive director of Provías Nacional, Carlos Lozada; the general director of Aquatic Transport, Juan Carlos Paz; and the General Director of Land Transport, Paul Concha.
