Despite Haitian leader’s admittance, poultry ban holds at border
Dajabon, Dom. Rep.- Despite Haiti president Michel Martelly’s having admitted to Dominican counterpart that the their chickens and eggs are of quality, their ban in the weekly binational market Dajabón holds.
Martelly had told president Danilo Medina that his government’s decision was based on economic reasons, and not from the possibility of bird flu affecting Dominican Republic.
In that regard, commercial activity in the border town’s binational market on Mondays and Fridays continues with sales of farm products as well as garments and footwear, but without chickens and eggs.
Before the Haitian leader’s revelation, Medina announced efforts to find new markets and consolidate established ones for the country’s poultry products, including Puerto Rico and Venezuela.
