While exploring new avenues of cooperation for the protection of the environment between the two countries, this meeting was also an opportunity to initiate a dialogue on certain environmental problems, such as the use and recycling of plastic products and the intensification of the application of the decree prohibiting the importation, marketing and use in any form of polyethylene and expanded polystyrene (EPS or PS crystal or styrofoam) products http://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-8995-haiti-notice-ban-on-plastic-bags-and-styrofoam.html
Remaining open to the continuation of this dialogue, Ambassador Manfred Auster expressed the will of his country to continue to be alongside the Ministry of the Environment in the implementation of the Government's roadmap in this sector.
