Binational market is tense as Dominican merchants threaten boycott
Dajabón, Dominican Republic.- A tense binational market with stricter controls than last week was held Monday morning in the border city between Haitians and Dominicans.
Haiti police and Customs inspectors make it more difficult for Dominican products to their territory across the bridge over the Masacre river, while Dominican business leaders warn of a boycott
Fernando Diaz and Abigail Bueno, of the local vendors and retailers associations, said they rebuke the attitude of Haitian officials.
Quoted by lisin.com.do, the business leaders said they might shutter the binational market completely next Friday, if the Haitian government continues the ban on Dominican products and goods.
