The two sides agreed to continue the conversation later this year. In addition to agreements on the oil industry, Herrera and Benítez signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate in a number of areas, including technology, training, research projects, and strategic planning in oil, electricity, energy efficiency, and renewable energy.'
