First, President Juan stressed "the good understanding" between the municipal and regional administrations, and "coordination around policies with considerable local impact". Juan wanted the cabinet to be present at the meeting so they could learn first-hand about the projects. "We told the premier that, for Formentera, the maritime transport order is essential this term", she said, insisting the decree must affect "not only the regular line but also day trips". She also underscored the importance of "guarantees on islander mobility", and asserted that "service minimums and maximums be respected". Juan also asked the chief of the Balearic government to "act as a go-between for the distinct administrations involved in regulating maritime transport and restructuring the port".

For her part, Francina Armengol underlined the joint work between the Govern and the Consell over the last seven years. She also made assurances that the regional government had already "practically completed the maritime transport order" and that it would reflect local demands. She drew attention to "fundamental" investments in education, social services and health. Armengol announced that on Monday the government commission would lay the groundwork for IbSalut to bid to build a permanent 061 emergency response base on Formentera. After the meeting, Juan and Armengol visited the haemodialysis service works, which started this year.
