Temistocles Montas, Minister of Economy, explained at a press conference that the study will seek to understand the demographic characteristics of immigrants, economic activities in which they engage and their social contribution to national development.
Paul Tactuk, the Director of the Office for National Statistics said that the study will cost $1.4 million and will begin in June 2012 with the participation of international organizations and financial support from the European Union.
Irene Horejs, Ambassador of the European Union, stated that in Europe "we know how the immigration issue is delicate," insisting on the necessity of knowing objectively the migration policy of the Dominican Republic on a rational basis.
According to UN estimates, between 600,000 and one million immigrants from Haiti, living illegally in the Dominican Republic, where they work mainly in construction or as street vendors.
None of censuses conducted in the Dominican Republic, has so far quantified the number of legal and illegal immigrants.
