Alvarado is accompanied by Minister of Foreign Relations Rodolfo Solano, Minister of Foreign Trade Andrés Valenciano and the Minister of Technology Paola Vega.

According to the government, Alvarado and his committee will hold meetings to attract investment to the country and seek cooperation in areas such as sustainability, climate change, environment, science, technology, among others.
