Big business backs Custom’s push to normalize trade with Haiti
Santo Domingo.- The National Business Council (Conep) n Mon. agreed with the Customs Agency’s request for Haiti to lift its ban on 23 Dominican products to enter its territory by land.
CONE Executive vice president César Dargám said it’s unacceptable that tariff barriers constantly affect Dominican Republic-Haiti bilateral trade. “We support all of the Customs Directorate’s actions to formalize bilateral trade, which would benefit both countries.”
Dargám’s statement comes after months since Haiti imposed the ban, for which Customs recently announced an effort to normalize trade with both countries charging the established tariff for imports and exports.
