With Haiti ‘uncertain’ exporters need to look to other markets

Santo Domingo.- Dominican Exporters Association (ADOEXPO) presidentSadala Khoury on Sunday called for joint action between the private and publicsectors to diversify export markets, and called trade with Haiti uncertain.

He said he has reports that powerful groups are behind Port-au-Prince’sban on 23 Dominicans products, aimed at in his view promoting trade with US producers,specifically in Miami.

Khoury said it’s not the first time Haitian authorities imposebans on Dominican products, “without any justification,” and violate treatiesand national and international agreements that regulate business activities.

Interviewed on Telesistema Channel 11, the export leadernoted Haiti’s ban on chickens and eggs in addition to Port-au-Prince’s restrictionson the import of plastics.
