Haiti - DR : Towards a Border Resident Card to facilitate bilateral trade ?
Florinda Rojas, Director of the National Institute of Migration (INM) of the Dominican Republic encourages the Directorate General of Migration (DGM) to create a border resident card, which would facilitate the movement of people who depend on binational trade in areas border with Haiti.

"There are many people who depend on border trade," said Rojas recalling "there is also the informal trade, which is the one that generates a larger economic movement [...] particularly at the border crossing of Dajabón, where the movement of traders of both countries is almost permanent.

He recalled that border markets are the economic engine for more than 300,000 people according to the organizations of traders and carriers of the provinces bordering Haiti.

He explained that this card would avoid the need for a passport, a visa and the payment of taxes when leaving or entering any of the territories, adding that his services were already investigating to delimit the border area and the number of people reside within the perimeter established by the authorities, that this card could cover.

He also underlined the effort made by the institute he directs to help the integration of Haitian immigrants in the Dominican Republic saying "It is undeniable that the most vulnerable part of the Haitian population must be supported by the Dominican Government so that it does not join the lines of extreme poverty.

He expressed satisfaction with relations with the new Government of Haiti, which he described as "very good" assuring that "Bilateral dialogue is developing and dialogue is the best way to find common ground to solve them together. In this sense, we have made good progress."

It remains to be seen whether this initiative will receive the support of elected representatives and know what will be the position of the Government of Haiti in the face of such a project... A world often separates a good idea from its commissioning...
