Plastics exported to Haiti, despite ban
Santo Domingo. – Dominican Industries Association Republic (AIRD) vice president Circe Almanzar on Monday revealed that despite the ban still in effect, manufacturers resumed plastics exports to Haiti, albeit informally.
She said in recent days local businesses have recovered some of the losses caused by Haiti’s ban on the import of Dominicans plastics and reiterated the product’s good quality, as evidenced by its exports to 72 countries.
Almanzar noted however, that the AIRD awaits a meeting with Haiti authorities and private sector, to identify the elements needed to formalize trade. “They’ve stated their interest in further formalizing trade so there’s no seepage of tax revenues from them and we’ve no doubt whatsoever that both countries would benefit.”
“For formal companies we represent, it would be much better and would provide greater legal security when business is done more formally,” she said, noting that despite the ban, Dominican and Haitian entrepreneurs work together.
