Dominican Republic employers: Haiti too slow with documents
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s Employers Association -Copardom- on Thursday said Haiti government’s "slowness" to issue documents to its nationals is cause for concern.

Copardom also urged Port-au-Prince to expedite and facilitate documents to its nationals and reiterated its concern with the low number of foreigners who’ve requested legalization to Dominican authorities.
In a statement, the employers also reiterated their commitment to the Plan and affirmed that promotes the responsibility of companies with their workers and illegal laborers.
