Santo Domingo.- The President of the Senate, Ricardo de los Santos, has assured that transportation and trade with Haiti will be reestablished in the coming hours, aiming to restore the flow of binational markets along the border provinces.

Well, they must had realized that Haiti provides $3 billions annually in trade surplus so they can not shut Haiti off… Now the question is “will Haiti play ball…?” Because Haitian are looking to trade with other countries and want to keep the border shut

The Dominican government wants to force the Haitian to stop building of the irrigation canal by closing its border and by preventing the exportation principally of food items to Haiti, but it is a blessing in disguise for the Haitians, for the fact that the Haitians from now on have decided not to rely too much on one country for such matter, as well they are learning to cultivate a lot of the products they import from the Dominican republic, as well they began to import foods from other countries from the region.
