Implementation of biometric identification at the border in the Dominican Republic to proceed as planned by the government

Santo Domingo.- President Luis Abinader of the Dominican Republic is firm on the implementation of biometric data registration on the border with Haiti. He believes this measure to be crucial for the security of the Dominican Republic. The objectives set when the border was closed have been achieved, but the construction of the canal on the Masacre River has been halted. Nonetheless, the government will continue to enforce its border protection plan.

President Abinader stated that the border area will undergo significant changes. He made it clear that while the border will remain open for trade, it will be up to the Haitian side to decide whether or not they want to engage in trade. Additionally, he disclosed plans to implement a labor market mechanization plan, aiming to decrease the hiring of foreign labor in different sectors. To support this plan, approximately 3 billion will be allocated through the Development and Export Bank (Bandex).
