The Deputy Antoine Rodon Bien-Aimé, President of the Commission explained that many border communities are hard hit by this decision, noting that people in these areas live of border trade and are since without economic activity.

The Deputy Jude Destiné, President of the Commerce Commission abounds in the same direction, describing the ban as part of "a plan of the oligarchy against the middle class, to establish a monopoly of certain articles on the border [...] We must work so that each can work and do business."

Recall that the Commission "Economy and Finance" of the lower house convened for Thursday, April 7 the Prime Minister, Jean-Charles; Yves Romain Bastien, v Jessy C.

In the Senate, the Commission Finance is also for the lifting of the ban and had also convened Wednesday including the Ministers of Economy; of Commerce and the Director General of Customs. A meeting postponed, ministers being in retirement. Senator Nenel Cassy, President of the Commission considers that the bancontributes to the rising cost of living in Haiti emphasizing that the Commission will meet in order to set another date for the conduct of the meeting.

His colleague, Senator Jean-Baptiste Bien-Aimé is also convinced that the prohibition of the Government Martelly, was intended to give a monopoly to a small group of traders in the capital to import these products by other ways more paying. He urges the authorities to take steps to lift the ban, while putting in place strict controls at border posts "should be eliminated this decision which further impoverishes the disadvantaged. Prior to this decision, 300 gourdes was needed for a bag of cement while today the price is more than 500 gourdes. But at the same time we continue to carry the product by smuggling. Therefore, this measure is only profitable for a small group of smugglers" while the small traders hardly exist anymore in the border area...
