On the other hand, the meeting with China's Vice President addressed issues in the fields of economy, trade, and investment.

Also on Wednesday, Mrs. Boluarte headed to Times Square to see a "Peru Brand" ad that had been displayed on different digital screens since Monday.

During the activity —which was intended to promote tourism, investment, and exports— the Head of State was joined by State Ministers and representatives of the Peruvian Chapter before the Pacific Alliance. 

Additionally, the dignitary took part in the annual meeting of the UNGA Platform of Women Leaders.

The session included the participation of Hungarian President Katalin Novák, Bulgarian Prime Minister Mariya Gabriel, as well as other heads of state and government.

During her participation, the Peruvian top official reaffirmed her commitment to ensuring an environment of equality for women, without discrimination and violence.

The UNGA Platform of Women Leaders is a special initiative of PGA and UN-Women that invites all current women Heads of State and Government to discuss priority issues on the international community's agenda and identify solutions to today's complex and interlinked challenges.

The UNGA Global Platform of Women Leaders stems from a meeting on 21 September 2021, between women Heads of State and Government and Mr. Abdulla Shahid, the President of the 76th session of the General Assembly. The aim of that meeting was to place gender equality at the forefront of the multilateral arena.
