Hispaniola business leaders in permanent talks to deal with trade hurdles
Santo Domingo.- Several Haitian and Dominican business leaders will hold permanent talks on trade and investment, for which they’ll meet again in Dominican Republic in November, as follow-up to the agreements reached in Miami and Port-au-Prince.
They said their meetings, to be called KisKeya /Quisqueya Permanent Business Summit, will also serve to conduct a feasibility study on trade along the Dominican-Haitian border and identify and seek solutions to the hurdles to business reciprocity.
The second meeting was hosted by Florida International University’s (FIU) Haiti Work Group and supported by the governments in Port-au-Prince and Santo Domingo, with representatives from the Inter-American Development Bank, the World Bank, the European Union and other bilateral donors.
Solutions to conflicts
The business leaders from both nations agreed that the mechanism to resolve those issues is the joint Haitian-Dominican Bilateral Commission, established in the 1990s to deal precisely with bilateral topics.
