Haiti - Politic : Import ban on Dominican poultry products, no Agreement...
According to Pierre Richard Casimir, this mission was part of a diplomatic reciprocity approach and of strengthening of the dialogue initiated with the Dominican Republic by the administration Martelly-Lamothe to harmonize relations between the two states.
After about four hours of discussion, the two Commissions have failed to agree on a resolution solution to the conflict between the two countries, resulting from the ban by Haiti, of the sale of poultry products from the Dominican Republic.
Following this meeting, the Dominican Ambassador to Haiti, confirmed this information, even as he pointed out, it has been clearly demonstrated that there was no bird flu [H5N1) in the territory Dominican. He explained that the Haitian delegation would now return to Haiti to consult and eventually it will schedule a future meeting.
Leaving this workshop, members of the Haitian Commission have refused to comment, before getting into their cars to return to the country.
According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dominican, the decision taken by the Haitian government will not affect bilateral relations between the two countries, stressing that relations between Danilo Medina and President Michel Martelly "are very very good".
Recall that the Dominican Republic since 2008 has invested nearly one billion U.S. dollars in the production of eggs and chickens, it has two major production facilities and is the largest producer of eggs and chickens in the Caribbean. The Haitian market in this sector represents 30% of Dominican sales.
