New X-Ray Scanner at Airport Hugo Chavez of Cap Haitien

Recently, in order to meet international standards of trade exchanges, at the Hugo Chavez airport of Cap Haitien, the Ministry of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Rural Development (MARNDR) has installed an X-ray scanner at the arrival lounge to check the passengers and baggage.


This will help easier and faster detection and prevention of the entries of agricultural items which have no import permit or pose threats to the environment and health. This initiative is an extension of MARNDR's effort to modernize and protect Haitian agriculture from sanitary risks, including through quarantine inspection services in ports and airports open to foreign trade.

It has been implemented at a time when the government is planning to rejuvenate the agricultural sector through modernization. The equipment will remain at the disposal of the Customs and the National Police of Haiti to help them in their fight against smuggling.
