After the meeting it was agreed that a German trade mission will soon visit Costa Rica. The delegation will aim to expand German investments already in the country and look for new ones.

The meeting also addressed issues such as the situation in Nicaragua and Venezuela and the migration crisis facing the countries of the region as well as the experience of Germany in the care of migrants.
