Dominican Republic, Haiti set to talk trade, security
Santo Domingo.- Representatives of Dominican Republic’s and Haiti’s governments will meet in the resort town of Juan Dolio to resume bilateral talks Thursday, Presidency chief of staff Gustavo Montalvo announced Monday night.
"We’re pleased to receive once again the Haitian delegation for this new session of the dialogue, which we hope will allow us to move forward in the joint agenda which we’ve set out," he said.
Montalvo said the Government expects to assess the agreements already reached on health, trade, tourism, migration, agriculture, security and environment, among other issues in the meeting with Haiti’s delegation.
"The Haitian and Dominican people are quite different in many things, but both want more jobs, more security, more health and more opportunities. That’s the basis to reach agreements and continue to seek solutions," said Montalvo, who heads the Dominican commission, while Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe will head Haiti’s.
