Access to essential products will be provided to Haitians by Industry and Commerce

Santo Domingo.- The Ministry of Industry, Commerce and MSMEs of the Dominican Republic is establishing a humanitarian corridor to provide essential products to Haitian citizens. Minister Víctor “Ito” Bisonó announced on Twitter that they are collaborating with local merchants, authorities, and civil society to create this mechanism.

“We are working to provide Haitian citizens with access to basic needs,” he said in his tweet. Bisonó shared a video showing his arrival in the border province of Elías Piña by helicopter, as well as part of the meeting with relevant actors.

This initiative aims to reopen trade with Haiti and prioritize the provision of essential goods to Haitian citizens through a humanitarian corridor. The reopening of trade with Haiti will initially be limited to pedestrian traffic and will include discussions with merchants from the border markets in the southern region of the Dominican Republic. Minister Bisonó also met with representatives of merchant associations from the Dajabón binational market, who expressed their willingness to reopen the border.

The goal is to address the basic needs of Haitian citizens while fostering cooperation on the border.
