The summit issued the Joint Declaration on the Enhancement of Trilateral Comprehensive Cooperative Partnership, and injected new vitality into the trilateral cooperation in both its depth and width by promoting enhanced mutual political trust, deeper economic and trade cooperation, the promotion of sustainable development, the expanding of social, people-to-people and cultural exchanges, and the strength of coordinating and cooperation over major regional and international issues.

The three countries agreed to begin talks on a free-trade agreement within the year, and to immediately initiate domestic procedures.
