Haiti, Dominican Presidents ink sweeping agreements
PORT-AU-PRINCE.- President Danilo Medina on Friday offered the Haitian government the facilities to document its nationals across the country, with the support of the Organization of American States (OAS).
The offer was made during the meeting between Medina and Haiti president Michel Martelly, during the 5th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Association of Caribbean States held in the Haitian capital since Wednesday and which ends today.
Medina’s proposal notes that Dominican Republic would provide temporary work visas and regularize the foreigner’s immigration status on work contracts, after the Haitian government issues IDs to its citizens.
In a statement, the National Palace said the leaders also agreed to instruct their respective Industry and Commerce ministers to work to spur trade between both countries, as well as for the protection of the environment.
